What's Your Best Leadership Advice?

Five tips from Wegner Award winner C. Alan Peppers.

The National Credit Union Foundation is honoring C. Alan Peppers, former president/CEO of Westerra Credit Union, Denver, with the 2016 Herb Wegner Memorial Award.

Peppers receives the award for his remarkable leadership, tireless advocacy for the movement, and vigorous charitable efforts. To learn more about Peppers, Credit Union Magazine asked him to share his best leadership advice.

Peppers says:

1. Do everything you can to help credit union members achieve financial success.

2. Never forget where you came from.

3. Be on time.

4. Be someone who can be trusted and keep your word.

5. Don't be afraid to take a chance and offer someone an opportunity that might change their life forever.

Since 1989, the Foundation has presented the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards, often referred to as the "Academy Awards" of the credit union movement. The awards are named in honor of late CUNA CEO Herb Wegner, whose dedication and innovative ideas truly revolutionized how credit unions serve their communities.
