Pen Air FCU Board Chairman named LSCU Volunteer of the Year

Maurice Johnson

 The League of Southeastern Credit Unions has named Pen Air Federal Credit Union Board of Directors Chairman Maurice Johnson the 2011 Volunteer of the Year.

“The LSCU is proud to recognize these professionals, volunteers, and credit unions that have made outstanding contributions to the development and growth of the credit union movement in Alabama and Florida,” the LSCU wrote in a recent announcement naming the award winners.

Johnson will be honored in conjunction with the LSCU’s Annual Convention and Exposition Closing General Session June 18 in Orlando, Fla.

Johnson has been a member of the credit union since 1965, served on the supervisory committee, and then the board of directors for more than 30 years. For the past seven years, Johnson has served as chairman. He is active in political affairs and makes a trip to Washington D.C. every year to promote credit unions. Johnson is also active in the chapter by attending all chapter meetings as well as other major credit union conferences. His influence has helped Pen Air FCU earn the 5-star superior rating from Bauer Financial for 81 consecutive quarters as of March 2011.

“I want to thank all of the people who helped me,” Johnson said. “You can’t do it by yourself. I want to thank my wife, the other volunteers and the staff and all of the employees who helped me get this. And I also want to thank League for the opportunity.”

Representing 332 credit unions with $55 billion in assets and 6.5 million members, the LSCU is the trade association for Alabama and Florida credit unions. For more information, visit www.lscu.coop.
