Big Data/Big Climb placed in America’s Credit Union Museum’s Ensweiler Research Library

Author Anne Legg to donate profits from book sales in September 2022 to support HERSTORY Permanent Exhibit

MANCHESTER, NH (August 30, 2022) — America’s Credit Union Museum has asked Anne Legg, CEO of THRIVE Strategic Services, to place three copies of her book, Big Data/Big Climb, in the Ensweiler Research Library. The placement of the book in the museum will take place in conjunction with the Sept. 29 unveiling of the HERSTORY exhibit honoring the women of the credit union movement. Legg served as a judge in the Credit Union Women Making History nominations for 2022 inductees into the HERSTORY permanent exhibit.

Legg has offered to donate the profits from sales of Big Data/Big Climb throughout the month of September 2022 to help support the maintenance of exhibit. Credit union leaders are invited to attend the unveiling of the HERSTORY exhibit at the museum in Manchester, N.H. You can also meet the author and buy your copy at the event!

“More than half of credit union CEOs are female, and that’s very different from banks,” Legg observed. “That’s incredible and a differentiator we need to recognize and use to inspire up and coming credit union leaders!”
Industry experts have called Big Data/Big Climb a must-read book for credit union management as a guide for those seeking to improve members’ lives using data. This foundational primer on data activation uses the metaphor of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to provide both clarity and a framework for the subject. It cuts through techno-jargon and translates data activation concepts into a playbook for credit unions to create revolutionary member relationships.

“I’m so happy to support all credit union leaders to activate, accelerate and elevate their data to improve their members’ lives,” Legg said. “It’s an amazing feeling to be able to specifically support our female leaders through the fundraiser to help ensure the exhibit receives continued support. I can’t tell you how excited and humbled I am to have my book in America’s Credit Union Museum!”

HERSTORY is a permanent exhibit honoring the past, present and future of the incredible women making history in the credit union movement. It will be an interactive exhibit showcasing inspiring stories never heard before.
