Jenkins to receive AACUC lifetime achievement award
MADISON, Wis. (4/19/12)--Shirley Jenkins, a long-time active supporter and advocate in the credit union industry, was named the 2012 Pete Crear Lifetime Achievement Award-winner by the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC).

The award is presented annually to recognize a credit union professional or volunteer whose career best embodies the AACUC's mission to "increase the global credit union movement's strength by adding the focused perspective and energy of credit union volunteers and professionals of African-American and African descent."

Jenkins serves as board secretary/legislative chair at the $1.66 billion asset Municipal CU (MCU) in New York City.

In 1983, she was elected to the MCU board of directors, and later became the first female president in the history of MCU.

She was inducted into the Credit Union Association of New York's Hall of Fame in 2005 for her work in promoting the credit union movement locally, nationally and internationally.

Jenkins was a founding member of AACUC and served as vice chair of its board of directors.  

Jenkins will receive the award at a dinner Aug. 3 during the 14th Annual AACUC Conference in Charleston, S.C.
