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.

Aaron Lambert, Nutritional Wellness Center

In 2006 we had a vision of creating a wellness center that would be highly successful in helping people to achieve optimal health. We also wanted to connect as many people as possible with the wonderful locally grown food. The business loan and the Business CENTS program both allowed us to achieve our dream. A loan officer even came to visit our business some time later to see how we were doing.
