|Arizona Credit Union Foundation Awards Young Professional Scholarship to Attend the World Council Event in Gdansk, Poland|
|(Phoenix) – June 8, 2011 – The Mountain West Credit Union Association, the trade association for Arizona, Colorado and Wyoming’s credit unions, announced Miriam Limon, Communications Specialist with AEA Federal Credit Union as this year’s recipient of their Foundation’s annual Gary L. Plank World Council of Credit Union’s (WOCCU) Young Credit Union Professionals Program Scholarship (WYCUP).
The WYCUP is a scholarship program designed to promote credit union professionals under the age of 35 years old. As Arizona’s 2012 WYCUP representative, Miriam has also been automatically nominated for one of five scholarships WOCCU will award to attend the 2013 World Credit Union Conference in Ottawa, Canada.
The scholarship is given to individuals that have made a significant impact locally, regionally or nationally in the credit union movement. Thomas Martin, President/CEO of AEA Federal Credit Union feels that Miriam is a “Rare find. Her impassioned commitment to the fundamental credit union purpose of people helping people extends far beyond her role as Communications Specialist at AEA Federal Credit Union in Yuma, Arizona.”
Ms. Limon will attend the 2012 World Credit Union Conference LET’S GDANSK, from July 15-18, 2012 at the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Hall in Gdnask, Poland.
