2018 CUES Distinguished Director Named

MADISON, Wis.— CUES is pleased to announce James Sackett, Director, Firefly Credit Union in Burnsville, MN, as the 2018 CUES Distinguished Director award winner. CUES Distinguished Director award honors strong, CUES member volunteers whose achievements have strengthened their credit union.

James was the first millennial to join the Firefly Credit Union board in January 2015; he brings a fresh perspective to the board room to drive the movement forward, challenge the status quo, and actively represent the critical millennial generation. 

As board member, James continues to push toward a culture of continuous learning and improvement around ideas such as training requirements, external training, socialization of best practices, and developing a forum for idea sharing for strategic discussion. He leads by example, attending and completing multiple professional development training courses and encouraging others to become well-informed in credit union matters as well. He is a consistent advocate for board member accountability, meeting preparation, and offering perspectives on the credit union movement.

In addition, James initiated the process to formally define and document Firefly Credit Union’s merger and acquisition policy, was the leading advocate for increasing the credit union’s social media usage and portfolio and has attended community education events presented by Firefly Credit Union to ensure the offerings presented to members and the community are of value.

Join us in honoring James at CUES’ Directors Conference, December 2-5, 2018, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, Waikoloa, Big Island, HI. Register today as our early bird rates expire October 18.
