Hall of Fame

The Utah Credit Union Hall of Fame was erected to recognize the important contributions of individuals to the credit union industry. Induction to the hall of fame recognizes recipients as leaders at their credit unions, in Utah, and across the country–as individuals who have struck a cord and made a significant difference in the promotion of the credit union philosophy.
