(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - Tongass Federal Credit Union’s Vice President of Operations, Rachel Guyselman, was awarded the Emerging Leader Award from Credit Union National Association earlier this month.

Guyselman received the first ever Emerging Leader Award for her accomplishments in the credit union industry. She was chosen for this national award out of many nominations from all over the United States.

Her accomplishments include creating the credit union’s first marketing plan, increasing social media followers and awareness, and creating a career progression program for front-line branch staff.

Guyselman is also an active community volunteer. She serves on the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce board, is a member of Rotary 2000, is the Vice President of Public Relations for First City Toastmasters, and is a VITA Tax Volunteer.

Guyselman has been with TFCU for over three years and has been in the financial industry for ten years. As winner of the award Guyselman received a scholarship to attend the Emerging Leader Institute in San Diego. Guyselman said she had a great time and met several credit union peers, including one from Anchorage.

Tongass Federal Credit Union was founded in 1963 by a group of teachers and public employees. TFCU is a financial cooperative owned by its members. Today it operates five branches on four islands in southern Southeast Alaska, and is open for membership to anyone living in its service area.
