United 1st Federal Credit Union recently honored a long-time board member’s retirement.
The credit union held a dinner at Lang’s Maria Restaurant to commemorate Terry Brown’s 46-year career.
Brown watched United 1st grow from $14 million in assets serving about 6,500 members to $180 million in assets and serving almost 26,000 members.
He retired from the board of directors in March, having served since 1984.
During that time, he served on the executive committee, the asset liability committee and also he chairman. He was the first chairman to suggest and institute the rotating board officer posts.
Georgia Credit Union Affiliates recently named Terry Brown a 2017 Volunteer of the Year. He was one of three credit volunteers recognized across the state and will be presented the award at the GCUA convention in Savannah later this month.
