POPA FCU in 'Leader 2 Leader'
Ray Bartus is the latest credit union CEO to share his experience and leadership advice in the current edition of Credit Union Digest, along with his credit union's board chairman.
"You will learn as much from failure as you do from success, and you will be a stronger person and leader as a result," said the Peace Officers Professional Association (POPA) FCU CEO in the latest Leader 2 Leader column of the August/September issue of Digest.
In the column, credit union professionals can explore the first credit union experience, personal philosophy, leadership advice, educational background, biggest challenge, and other insightful responses of Bartus and POPA FCU Board Chairman Ray Leyva.
"We should always try to do the best we can in whatever we undertake, and make sure nobody ever has reason to fault you for not doing your job" Leyva said.
