"I always knew I had the passion and drive to make a difference in the industry, I just needed the 2018 ICUL Convention to light my fire and guide me down the right path. I can’t wait to continue to be involved in the credit union movement and attend events put on by the league. Thank you, ICUL, for the experience of a lifetime!"
