Congressional Honor Bestowed
Rep. John Campbell, R-CA, has awarded NuVision FCU CEO Roger Ballard with a special congressional recognition for "Outstanding Business Leadership" during a recent ceremony at the congressman’s office in Irvine.
"It is an honor to receive this recognition from Congressman Campbell, whose deep knowledge of our industry and tireless work on behalf of the American people is commendable," Ballard said. "We are focused on helping our members with their financial service needs, and our success is aligned with our members' success."
Ballard, a participator in Campbell's local CEO Roundtable meetings, has provided the congressman with insights on financial services issues that impact consumers and small businesses.
NuVision serves thousands of Campbell's constituents and has an office located in his district. The credit union has been involved in a number of prominent community events across Orange County, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s "Light the Night" awareness event, Project Self Sufficiency, and the annual Children's Hospital of Orange County's "Walk in the Park."
"Congressman Campbell has been a great supporter of consumers' access to credit unions, and we have expressed our appreciation for his support," Ballard said. "It's important we maintain relationships with our congressional representatives so they understand the positive difference we are making for consumers."
Campbell is a member of the House Financial Services Committee and also chairs the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade. Additionally, he serves on the House Budget Committee.
At $1.3 billion in assets, NuVision FCU serves more than 87,000 members primarily in Los Angeles and Orange counties.
