RECOGNITION OF ROBERT MARQUETTE, NEWLY ELECTED DIRECTOR ON THE BOARD OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF FEDERAL CREDIT UNIONS -- (Extensions of Remarks - September 24, 2004)
Mr. HOLDEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Bob Marquette, the president and CEO of Members 1st Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Mechanicsburg, PA, on his recent election to the Board of Directors of the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, NAFCU. Bob has been a vocal supporter of credit union issues at both the state and national levels.
Bob's election to the NAFCU board is just one more in a long list of accomplishments that has spanned more than 30 years of service in the credit union movement. Bob serves on the board of directors for both the Credit Union Campaign for Consumer Choice and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation. Additionally, Bob serves on the Philadelphia Fed's Credit Union Advisory Council. Bob is a tireless advocate of the credit union movement and I am sure he will serve NAFCU, and the entire credit union community, well in his new position on the board of directors.
Under Bob's management Members 1st FCU has continued to flourish. Today, Member's 1st has 15 branches serving more than 93,000 Pennsylvanians living and working in the south central region of the State.
It is because of the good work of Bob and others like him that the credit union movement enjoys the success it has today. As the President/CEO of Members 1st, Bob has focused on ensuring his members receive helpful, personal service that caters to the needs of individual members and their financial goals. Such service is the hallmark of the credit union movement and Members 1st has exemplified that philosophy under Bob's tenure as president. I wish Bob good luck in his new role as a member of the NAFCU Board of Directors.
