California league Bannan award winners announced
ONTARIO, Calif. (9/12/11)--Pat Neighbors, strategic development officer at The Golden 1 CU, Sacramento, Calif., and Grossmont Schools FCU in El Cajon, Calif., are the 2011 recipients of the Kim Bannan Eternal Flame Awards. The awards, presented by the California Credit Union League, recognize efforts that contribute to the success and future of Shapiro Group credit unions through the cooperative spirit of “People Helping People.” The awards were named after Kim Bannan, former league vice president of credit union development and research and information. In 1992, the league founded the Shapiro Group to cooperatively pool the resources of the credit union community to help small credit unions operate efficiently and effectively. Neighbors was recognized as a long-standing champion of small credit unions. In recent years, she has served on the Shapiro Advisory Committee, working with the committee and league to offer educational training opportunities to small credit unions through the CU Comply program. Currently, more than 50 small credit unions statewide use the low-cost service to help train staff and ensure compliance in their organizations. The award recipient in the company/credit union category, Grossmont Schools FCU, was honored for the support CEO Steve Devan and staff provided for small credit unions, including El Cajon, Calif.-based Ketema FCU. Devan has been involved with the credit union industry for 18 years. He has headed Grossmont Schools CU for the past eight years. Neighbors and Grossmont Schools will be honored during this year’s California Credit Union League Annual Meeting and Convention, Oct. 26-28 in San Diego.
