SALT LAKE CITY (3/21/14)--The Utah Credit Union Association (UCUA) honored three credit union professionals as its annual convention in Salt Lake City earlier this month.
The three were selected by UCUA's education committee.
Scott Weber, president/CEO, Box Elder County CU, Brigham City, received the Innovator Award for his work in training, employee benefits and incentives. At the $92 million-asset credit union, Weber implemented an idea log for employees to share their thoughts. Every idea is considered and receives a response (Association Update March 19).
The Inspiration Award went to Roland Whitesides, vice president of collections, Deseret First CU, Salt Lake City, $431 million in assets. UCUA cited his passion for the credit union movement and his strong desire to help members who are struggling to make payments. He focuses on balancing the needs of the members with those of the credit union.
Over the past 16 years, Ilene Rollo has helped Moroni-based Utah Heritage CU increase its assets to nearly $50 million from $13 million. She received the Visionary Award for her work in expanding the credit union's geographical presence as well as products and services. Rollo will retire from the credit union movement this year.
