PCUA announces lifetime achievement award winners
HARRISURG, Pa. (3/3/09)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) announced the winners of its 2009 Lifetime Achievement Awards. Barb Fortney, retired CEO of LANCO FCU, Lancaster, was named the 2009 William W. Pratt Professional of the Year (Life is a Highway March 2). Herb Yost, board chair of Diamond CU, Pottstown, was named the 2009 Joseph A. Moore Volunteer of the Year. Fortney retired in January after 25 years as CEO of LANCO FCU. She holds the Credit Union Development Educator designation, was active in the Lan-Chester Chapter of Credit Unions, and helped form the Lancaster Consortium for Hispanic Financial Literacy. Under her leadership, the credit union grew from $2.5 million in assets to more than $46 million, and expanded to four locations under a community charter, which includes all of Lancaster County. The credit union serves more than 10,000 members. Yost, who recently announced his retirement from the board, has dedicated 26 years of volunteer service to Diamond CU, including the past 16 years as chairman. His leadership has influenced the growth of the credit union from $10 million to more than $348 million in assets. It serves nearly 38,000 members. The awards will be presented during the gala banquet of PCUA’s 75th Annual Convention, May 16 in Hershey.
