Neighbors Supervisory Committee member, Jim Carroll, announces retirement after 34 years

BATON ROUGE, LA (May 15, 2018) — After 34 years of service on the Board of Directors and the Supervisory Committee, Jim Carroll has announced his retirement from Neighbors FCU. Carroll was elected to the Baton Rouge Teachers FCU Board of Directors in 1974 before it became Neighbors FCU and has served the credit union since then.

Before serving with Neighbors, Carroll worked for the East Baton Rouge Parish School System from 1966. He retired from the school system in 1997 as the Director of Purchasing.

During Carroll’s time at Neighbors he has overseen tremendous growth of the credit union. When he was elected to the Board of Directors, BRTFCU had less than $65 million in assets. Today, Neighbors has more than $833 million in assets.

“I’ve enjoyed my whole time with Neighbors,” Carroll said. “The staff has done a wonderful job throughout the years, but I’m looking forward to spending more time with my church and family.”

About Neighbors Federal Credit Union

Neighbors Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative operating as an  association dedicated to "people helping people." A handful of educators started Baton Rouge  Teachers in 1954 with a shoe box, a couple hundred dollars and the goal of making financial  services available to school system employees in our area.   Now, Neighbors Federal Credit Union is the largest community-chartered credit union in the  state of Louisiana with over 76,000 members and over $1 billion in assets. Since that time,  Neighbors has undergone a variety of changes, but the mission has stayed the same: Enhance  members' financial well-being and be a partner in the communities Neighbors serves.
