2019 Award Winner
Board Chair, Guadalupe Credit Union
Santa Fe, NM
A board member for 17 years, Linda played a key role in developing the credit union’s current mission to help its membership base become financially empowered.
Linda’s passion to serve the surrounding community, which includes many recent immigrants and the underserved, was key in keeping the credit union focused on this mission and vision. As a result, Guadalupe Credit Union became a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), and has since received over $3.8 million in funding. The institution has grown during this timeframe from $30 million in assets to over $175 million, and from 4,800 members to over 20,000.
Linda serves as a mentor for new board members. She was one of the first to receive the Certified Credit Union Volunteer designation, and through her leadership all Guadalupe Credit Union directors have become Certified Credit Union Board Members.
