Connie Anderson, CEO Outreach Federal Credit Union
Q: How long have you been in the credit union industry?
CA: 32 years
Q: What is the best advice you have ever been given?
CA: This is not our money (employees) the credit union money belongs to the members, remember this, when you give out loans, rates, purchase supplies, New office space, and investments. When you do the day to day loan approval and purchases its easy to forget who the money really belongs to.
Q: What advice would you give to a young credit union professional?
CA: Members are the reason we have a credit union. We are NOT a bank. Personal service and personal values above all else.
Q: What do you think people would be surprised to learn about you?
CA: I have three beautiful grandbabies. Annaleigh, six, Adia, three and Case, one. I love to travel and I love sweets.
Q: Do you have a pet?
CA: Ella a 1 1/2-year-old Shihpoo. Ella is the sweetest companion you could ask for. She is our credit union mascot. Comes to work with her momma. She loves her credit union.
