Amanda Farnham named a 2021 Credit Union Rock Star
EAU CLAIRE, WI (October 20, 2021) — Amanda Farnham of Royal Credit Union (Royal) is among 31 credit union professionals and volunteers named as 2021 Credit Union Rock Stars by the editorial team of Credit Union Magazine.
The Credit Union Rock Stars program recognizes outstanding credit union professionals and volunteers from a wide range of disciplines who use their unique strengths to advance the missions of their credit unions. This year’s winners were selected for their exceptional creativity, innovation, and passion.
Farnham works as a Compliance-Risk Management Specialist at Royal. Royal’s first YP CU Activist, Farnham sees herself as a “trailblazer” because she likes to pave the way for other young professionals. This role is another way she can inspire young professionals and help them grow professionally. “You could tell that lawmakers want to hear from their constituents with varied experiences and different perspectives,” she says. Her story appears on CUNA News, a website published by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
“The 2021 class of Rock Stars is diverse in its backgrounds and strengths,” said Michelle Willits, publisher of Credit Union Magazine. “During the past year’s trying times, these Credit Union Rock Stars used their unique characteristics to serve their members, their communities, and their co-workers.”
Sponsored by Fiserv, Credit Union Rock Stars will be profiled in a special digital issue of Credit Union Magazine. Check out all the winners and read their stories at news.cuna.org/rockstar.
