Let us introduce you to our member at large, Amy Close! This is Amy’s third year and final year with SYL, and we are sad she will be departing in January. Amy is with Unity Credit Union in Unity and is the Manager of Member Experience. Let’s find out a bit more about Amy!

Tell us about you and your Credit Union journey. How did you get to where you are now?

I have been with the Credit Union system for almost 15 years. I started my career back at Synergy Credit Union as a part-time teller. I applied for positions as they opened and soon found myself in a Consumer Lender role. I then got married and had 3 children and took time raise my children until they reached school age. At which time I relocated to Unity, SK and then again came on as a part-time teller until full-time positions became available and that brings me to date in my current role here at Unity Credit Union as the Manager of Member Experience. Through out that time I also obtained my Mutual Funds license as I also was an Investment Specialist in my previous role.

Why did you join SYL?

Because Shannon told me I should!! LOL, and I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone and start meeting like-minded people with in the Credit Union system.

What are you most proud of so far in your SYL journey?

Overcoming all the obstacles throughout COVID. It was a journey to say the least.
