Greylock Federal Credit Union is honored to announce that its President/CEO John L. Bissell was elected to a three-year term on the national board of directors of the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC).

The AACUC was created to increase the strength of the global credit union community and recognizes the differences and distinctions of each individual, group, or organization that are represented in society and within the credit union movement.

“We are delighted to receive John’s talents on the AACUC Board of Directors,” states Maurice R. Smith, AACUC Board Chairman. Smith continues, “John brings a proven record of thought leadership to the Organization. The Board continually contemplates how to best serve the entire Credit Union Movement. We are excited for the contributions John already provides for our endeavors.”

Bissell was one of three elected from a pool of esteemed nominees from across the credit union industry. In response to his successful bid, Bissell said “I am passionately committed to achieving true financial inclusion. My commitment with Greylock is to overcome the impact of historic redlining practices in local communities, expose and eliminate bias within credit scoring and lending, and raise up professional leadership voices from underserved communities.”
