Macias CO-OP Fin. Services honored by Calif. league
ONTARIO, Calif. (9/28/10)--Anita Macias, of San Francisco-based Patelco CU, and CO-OP Financial Services in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., are the 2010 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. The California-Nevada Credit Union league’s Shapiro Group is dedicated to assisting small credit unions under $23 million in assets. About 270 credit unions in the two states fall under that definition. This year’s recipient in the individual category, Macias, former Patelco senior vice president and now assistant to the president, was recognized as a long-standing champion of small credit unions. Through Patelco’s Adopt-a-Credit Union program, she helped small credit unions, including Mission SF FCU, Northeast Community FCU, Peoples Community Partnership FCU and East Palo Alto FCU over the years. The program offered sponsorship opportunities, strategic planning facilitation, funds to open branches, operating grants and zero-interest-rate share certificates to credit unions. The award recipient in the company category, CO-OP Financial Services, was honored for the assistance it provided this year to help small credit unions get involved in league advocacy efforts. For the past four years, the firm has donated $10,000 annually so CEOs and board members from small credit unions can attend the Credit Union National Association’s Government Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C. This year, CO-OP helped five credit unions attend the conference. Macias and CO-OP will be honored during the league’s Annual Meeting and Convention Nov. 15-17 in Anaheim, Calif. The awards were named after the late Kim Bannan, the league’s former vice president of credit union development and research and information.
