“There are so many important women in the credit union movement whose stories have never been shared beyond their own credit unions,” said Stephanie Smith, executive director at Amercia’s Credit Union Museum. “We are excited to bring these stories to life through this interactive exhibit as we celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the museum this year.”
In support of the “Herstory” exhibit, PSCU, the nation’s premier credit union service organization (CUSO), will sponsor the “Present” segment of the exhibit and the Illinois Credit Union League will sponsor the “Future” segment. The “Past” segment is still available for sponsorship.
