What I learned (or didn’t learn) my first year as a CEO – Post 3 of 3

Author: Jim Struble

Have you ever not taken your own advice? I mean, REALLY, not taken your own advice? You know you should do something, acknowledge the logic behind it, pat yourself on the back for understanding it, give that advice to others –then turn around and do something completely different instead? That was me setting 2019 goals with the team in my first year as CEO of Electro Savings. I could have sworn I was more intelligent than that–I know all about goal setting! I’ve learned from the best, coached others, and made great strides in my career by setting SMART goals.

Supplies for Success

Author: Stephanie Armas

Teachers are a special breed of individuals; they mold and shape the minds of our children to become the leaders of tomorrow. But, did you know even though you purchase school supplies for your child each year, teachers also spend quite a bit of money to stock their classrooms with supplies for some children that don’t have supplies on their first day? The average teacher is spending almost $500 to make sure their students have what they need to succeed. Help us in collecting school supplies to help 10 local member-teachers stock their classrooms this school year. Drop off new

What I learned in my first year as a CEO – Part 2

Author: Jim Struble

This goes without saying, but I’m going to anyway. Listening is the most important thing you can do as a leader, parent, and as a person in general. Knowing this has served me well especially in the last year! When we moved halfway across the country, pulling the kids out of their school partway through the year to attend a new one, I learned about listening on a whole new level. Sometimes all you can do is listen. When your 12-year-old daughter is navigating unfamiliar middle school halls, all you can do is listen. When all four kids are missing

What I learned in my first year as a CEO – Part 1

Author: Jim Struble

One year ago, I was hopping into my packed-to-the-brim car in NY after saying a tearful goodbye to my four kids and my wife, knowing I wouldn’t see them for weeks and not knowing when we would live together again under the same roof. It was going to be the longest stretch of my life away from any of them. I was headed to a city I had never lived in, for a job I had never done, with people I had never met, but I knew in my heart it was the right move to make. Fast forward to

Legacy Spotlight: Howard Hoemann

Author: Stephanie Armas

For a career as illustrious as Howard Hoemann’s, it’s hard to believe that his start in the credit union industry was completely accidental. While attending Bradley University in the mid-60s, a Peace Corps flier caught his eye. He applied and was approved to work with credit cooperatives in Ecuador, with training in Puerto Rico. “My entire experience in Puerto Rico and Ecuador really opened my eyes, and I was completely captivated by credit unions,” says Hoemann, “watching people obtain good financial education, acquire low-cost loans and accumulate savings.” While on assignment in Ecuador, he helped develop existing credit unions and

Nobody Notices Normal

Author: Jim Struble

This Tuesday, I had the pleasure of being part of my first Annual Meeting for Electro Savings! I have to admit that between the Blues game (Gloria!) and the severe weather rolling in at the exact wrong time, it concerned me as to whether we would have anyone show up! Luckily, I was wrong, and we had plenty of members, volunteers, and staff come to support us as we celebrated our 77th Annual Meeting. I had a few favorite moments that night, one of them being the chance to introduce and recognize the staff of Electro. Instead of reading off

Author: Stephanie Armas

We recently implemented two more employee ideas through our nationally recognized Power of You Employee Engagement Program. Just as the program’s name suggests, the Power of You rewards credit union employees for positively impacting the credit union with their powerful ideas and insights. Since the program’s inception in August 2018, credit union employees have submitted 25 Power of You ideas with four moving to implementation. “The Power of You gives staff a formal program to submit process improvement ideas that they believe will have a positive impact on the credit union, and then rewards them with a share of the
