WASHINGTON, DC (March 15, 2018)John Radebaugh, president/CEO of the Carolinas Credit Union League, has been recognized with the 2018 Eugene H. Farley League Leadership Award by the American Association of Credit Union Leagues (AACUL).

The award honors a league employee who demonstrates visionary leadership at the state and national levels.

He is scheduled to retire July 1.

Radebaugh received the award at a reception held with credit union system leaders last month in conjunction with the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.
