Washington, DC – Each year, the Credit Union House in Washington, DC honors impactful credit union professionals with the “Hall of Leaders” recognition. This is a unique and special designation that pays tribute to those who have made a significant impact on the credit union movement at the local, state, or national level.
The Dakota Credit Union Association (DakCU) is very pleased to announce that on Sunday, February 27th, Floyd Rummel III, President/CEO of Northern Hills Federal Credit Union (Sturgis, SD) received this honor during a ceremony held at the Credit Union House. Jeff Olson, President/CEO of DakCU presented the award.
“Floyd Rummel is only the second credit union leader from the Dakotas to receive this prestigious recognition, said Olson. “He has been a tireless advocate for credit unions in the Dakotas and across the country and has dedicated his career to serving as a volunteer in many capacities. His work to advance the industry has made a direct impact on South Dakota’s communities and families by ensuring they will always have access to affordable financial services,” he added.
DakCU nominated Rummel this year in appreciation for his many years of dedicated service. He has been engaged at nearly every level of the credit union movement, serving in leadership roles in the South Dakota League, SD Governmental Affairs Committee, and the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC). He was instrumental in combining the South Dakota and North Dakota Leagues in 2007 and served as the National Board Chair for Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union. Currently, he is serving as a DakCU South Dakota Health Benefits Trustee.
Names of Hall of Leaders inductees are prominently displayed on the second floor of Credit Union House and viewed by all who visit the facility, including members of Congress, distinguished credit union leaders, and thousands of annual visitors.
