ICU Foundation Perpetual Awards
Maxine Callies Tribute (2006)
Maxine Callies’ career in the credit union movement spans nearly 40 years.
Up until her very recent retirement, Maxine worked for SIUE Credit Union for 37 years, serving as its CEO for more than 20 years of those years. Not one to sit still, she is currently a board member there. She has also served on the board of CUPAC for more than 15 years, including as Chairman. She is retiring from that position later today.
At the chapter level, Maxine is still very active in the George G. Burnett Chapter and has held every officer position. Maxine is currently the League Director for the Burnett Chapter and also served as its legislative representative for five years. Maxine found time to earn her CCUE designation and teach CCUE classes in Madison for 15 years. In addition, she was also named the CUES Illinois Council’s Executive of the Year award in 1983.
Today, we pay special tribute to Maxine Callies, a friend and colleague, in recognition of her support and friendship.
