State’s Top Credit Union Volunteer Award presented to R. Brian Wilbur
HARRISBURG, PA (May 20, 2019) — R. Brian Wilbur has been presented with the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association’s top award for volunteers. Wilbur accepted the Joseph A. Moore Award for the 2019 Outstanding Volunteer of the Year on May 17 at the Association’s 85th Connect Annual Convention at Hershey Lodge in Hershey.
Brian has served as a PSECU official for more than 50 years, including ten years as the credit union’s Board Chair (1979-1983 and 2006-2012) and 15 years as its Board Vice Chair (1984-1995 and 2001-2005). Additionally, he volunteered time doing board committee work. He was Chair of PSECU’s Credit Committee for several years and currently is Chair of the Nominating Committee. During his tenure with PSECU, the credit union has grown from $1.8 million to $5.4 billion in assets and from 8,300 to more than 450,000 members.
“In the time I’ve been involved with PSECU, I’ve watched it grow to become the state’s largest credit union both in terms of membership and assets. To me, that means that we’re doing something right – that people see the value in the products and services we provide, and that in response, they’re choosing to bank with PSECU. It demonstrates that we are successfully fulfilling our vision to serve as a trusted financial partner,” added Brian. “I’m proud to know that I’ve been a part of something that has been so well received and beneficial to others. To me, that is what being a volunteer is all about.”
The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented in memory of Joseph A. Moore, who served as an Association Director from 1936-1972. He sat as Board Chairman for three terms and was the state’s first national delegate to the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Board of Directors.
