Last Friday, we held a retirement reception for Mary Lee Blommel. For those that don’t know Mary Lee, you have missed out. She has been with our organization for over 36 years, beginning with the Arizona League in 1982. She has a total of over 57 years in the credit union movement. She began her career with the Association as a field representative. She has had several titles throughout the years, but no matter what the title, she has seen her job as helping credit unions. She is hard working, dedicated and has made an enormous difference for credit unions and their members. If you haven’t had the chance to wish her a happy retirement, she will be in our office this week. You can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mary Lee thank you! There is no question you have made a difference and will be deeply missed.
