“Carrie’s leadership enabled the League to reach new heights as the champion for Virginia-based credit unions and as a national leader in advocating for the advancement of all credit unions,” said League Chairman Joe Thomas, of NextMark Credit Union. “We appreciate Carrie’s service during the past three years in the Commonwealth, and we’re pleased that her work on behalf of credit unions will continue on the national stage.”
