Bill Myers Youth Internship
Bill Myers, our founding CEO, retired from Alternatives Federal Credit Union in 2007. Anyone who worked with Bill cannot help but be impressed with Bill's keen sense of purpose and sharp intellect on how to convert purpose into action. He worked tirelessly to make Alternatives' mission "to build wealth in the community" a reality. And then, using Alternatives as his experimental station, he shares successes with the world. Now it's our turn to thank him for all he's done for Alternatives, for the community, for the credit union movement, for community development, and beyond.
Bill Myers Youth Internship
Bill didn't want a building named after him. He didn't want a gold watch. He wanted to see his work in starting the Student Credit Union and educating youth continue. The internship will provide support and opportunity to youth committed to working on issues of economic and social justice. Our ambition is to ignite the community development spark in the bright leaders of tomorrow.
Our Board committed Credit Union and personal funds to this Internship and ask you to join them in honoring Bill Myers and his outstanding contribution to community development credit unions. For more information e-mail Mary Beth Bunge, Director of Development.
Your gift to Alternatives Impact helps our community!
Joe Nolan, Home Green Home
My family's credit union has been Alternatives since '96; We liked the mission, and who could resist banking in a converted house? In 2005 I started thinking about a retail start-up called "Home Green Home" that would sell healthy and eco-conscious home furnishings and renovation supplies. The Business CENTS class helped me to understand and develop the elements of a business plan, and set me on the path to taking the big leap.
At every stage, I've felt well supported by Alternatives' friendly staff. From one-on-one consultation to business banking and credit needs, I've received quick, helpful service at Alternatives. We always look to partner with organizations that share our values, and Alternatives fits the bill.
