Dean L. Seefeld Tribute (2003)
Dean L. Seefeld’s career spans more than 30 years, and in that time he has touched many lives and seen many changes. With a motto of “be progressively aggressive”, he became a leader in the Bloomington area and the Illinois credit union movement and was known to get things done.
He set his sights early on the credit union movement for good, and sealed his future in 1971 by becoming general manager of IAA Credit Union. As testament to his commitment, Dean saw his credit union celebrate 50 years of service in 2001— 30 of which had him at the helm of IAA Credit Union.
His roots with the Illinois Credit Union System extend almost as far back as his credit union career, as he served as League Director from 1973 – 1977, and was inducted into the Illinois Credit Union Hall of Fame in 1996.
