Bert Hash honored with AACUC Crear achievement award
BALTIMORE (3/13/14)--Bert J. Hash Jr., president/CEO of Municipal Employees CU (MECU) of Baltimore, has been named the 2014 Pete Crear Lifetime Achievement Award recipient by the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC).
 
Hash was selected because of his commitment to the credit union philosophy and dedication to moving the credit union world forward at the local, regional, national and international levels, AACUC said.
 
Hash has led MECU of Baltimore for more than 15 years. During that time, the credit union increased to more than 100,000 members and $1.2 billion in assets from more than 50,000 members and $435 million in assets.
 
He is a past chairman and vice chairman of the AACUC board of directors.
 
Hash is a champion for causes not only in the Baltimore area, but outside of the U.S. During the Haiti earthquake crisis, not only did the MECU help as an organization, but Hash and his wife, Joan, provided personal support to the cause. Hash has also been instrumental in spearheading the Capital Credit Union in Scotland partnership.
 
In 2013, he led MECU's purchase of Advance Bank operations. The credit union-bank acquisition was the first of its kind in Maryland.
 
The award will be presented to Hash at a dinner in his honor Aug. 1 during the 16th Annual AACUC Conference in Memphis, Tenn.
