Credit Union Professional Development Scholarships:
Continuing education and development programs for credit union professionals help the credit union movement remain competitive in the financial marketplace.

Kathy Thomson – Legacy of Life & Learning – Scholarships:
Partners and friends of the Credit Union Movement reflect on the four decades of service Kathy Thomson dedicated to advancing credit unions’ ideals and growing its leaders.
We pay tribute to the loyal dedication Kathy and her family gave to the Credit Union Movement, more specifically the 43 years she contributed to the Idaho Credit Union League in professional capacities ranging from Receptionist to President/CEO. Kathy’s pledge of fidelity to the Credit Union Movement throughout her career embodied the cooperative principles and encouraged credit unions to strive to become the relevant choice of consumers in financial services.
While no words will ever fully describe Kathy’s impact to our Movement, we memorialize Kathy and her leadership in a manner celebrating her greatest passion: the development of future industry leaders. These partners and friends announce scholarships in Kathy Thomson’s name so that future Idaho credit union leaders can benefit and further commit their lives and careers to the Credit Union Movement.
