Marvin Named 2013 Paul Revere Award Recipient
WASHINGTON, DC (September 12, 2013) — The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) this week recognized Lt. Col. USAF, (Ret.) Edward Marvin, secretary of the Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union Board of Directors, as the credit union grassroots activist of the year with the presentation of the 2013 Paul Revere Award during its Congressional Caucus.
“Marvin has been a tireless supporter for credit unions during this vital time,” said NAFCU President and CEO B. Dan Berger. “He goes above and beyond in supporting NAFCU’s legislative and regulatory efforts.”
The award recognizes an individual who consistently and successfully carries the credit union banner, just as Paul Revere was a messenger and symbol for American patriots during the Revolutionary War. The award is based on the number of grassroots contacts made by individuals and reported to NAFCU.
Marvin is a regular on Capitol Hill, making visits on behalf of Randolph-Brooks FCU and the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). During this year’s meetings with lawmakers, he emphasized the importance of credit unions’ member business lending and tax exemption to maintaining a healthy economy.
Headquartered in Live Oak, Texas and established in 1952, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union is a member of NAFCU. Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union is a full-service financial cooperative whose mission is to improve members’ economic well-being and quality of life. With assets exceeding $5 billion, RBFCU serves more than 400,000 members from more than 40 branch locations in Texas.
The National Association of Federal Credit Unions is the only national organization that focuses exclusively on federal issues affecting credit unions, representing its members before the federal government and the public.
