BURNSVILLE – Firefly Credit Union is proud to announce James Sackett, Firefly board member, was named the 2018 Credit Union Executive Society (CUES) Distinguished Director award winner. This award honors strong, CUES member volunteers whose achievements have strengthened their credit union.
Sackett joined the Firefly board in January of 2015, bringing a fresh perspective to the team by challenging the status quo and representing the younger generation.
As board member, Sackett continues to push learning and improvement around ideas such as training requirements, external training, socialization of best practices, and developing a forum for idea sharing and strategic discussion.
A leader by example, Sackett has attended and completed multiple professional development training courses and encourages others to become well-informed in credit union matters as well.
Additionally, Sackett initiated the process to formally define and document Firefly’s merger and acquisition policy. He was also an advocate for increasing Firefly’s social media usage and has attended community education events presented by the credit union.
“The face of Firefly’s board has changed throughout the years, with a wider variety of backgrounds, career types and life stages,” said Bill Raker, Firefly President/CEO. “James is an individual who continues to bring thoughtful and relevant experiences to the table and we feel very lucky to have him on our team.”
