Abrams and Mal Sinclair--have been named 'Unsung Heroes' by the California Credit Union League. The awards are presented for service "above and beyond" to those who have served the credit union movement more than 20 years. Holliday, CEO of Burbank FCU for more than four decades before her retirement Jan. 29, set up the first student credit union west of the Mississippi. She served on several league committees and also as board member of the league's San Fernando/Antelope Valley Chapter. Abrams, in the movement for 33 years, worked for the league and also served 21 years as CEO of Partners (formerly VISTA) FCU, which serves Walt Disney Co. employees. He was a charter member of the Credit Union Presidents Association and Western CUNA Management School Alumni Association. Mal Sinclair, a native of South Africa, became CEO of Famco (formerly Ameron) FCU in 1977 and retired in 2001. He served as vice president/program chairman of the league's Southwest Chapter and led the group's letter writing campaign in 1970 to support legislation to preserve share draft legislation for credit unions. It was the first chapter to do so and other chapters followed, generating more than 10,000 letters. He also served on the board of Western Corporate FCU.
