LANSING, Mich. — LAFCU’s Julianne Ackerson has been selected to receive the 2020 Mission Award from the Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce at its Annual Dinner and Awards Night, Feb. 6.

Chamber representatives brought balloons to the LAFCU Corunna Branch in January to surprise Ackerson with the good news. She is assistant vice president of branch operations, responsible for managing the credit union’s Owosso and Corunna branches.

The Mission Award recognizes a member who has helped chamber staff meet the organization’s mission of advancing economic success in Shiawassee County. Staff members nominate an individual who has demonstrated a strong commitment to the chamber and gives generously of their time and talent.

“Julianne is a great influence upon our chamber staff,” said Jeff Deason, chamber president/CEO. “She always gives thoughtful consideration in her roles as a board member and a member of the many event planning committees on which she has served and currently serves.

“We are thrilled to honor Julianne this year.”

Ackerson said, “It’s truly an honor to be chosen for this award. I love working with the Shiawassee chamber staff.

“I’m grateful that LAFCU is a strong supporter of the communities we serve because it allows me the opportunity to support the chamber’s mission and contribute my time.”

Ackerson has contributed countless hours to chamber events, projects and committees over the past decade. In addition to serving on the chamber board of directors, she is a member of the Golf Classic and Ladies GOLD Golf Classic planning committees. She is also a past member and past president of the Chamber Ambassadors and has helped plan and volunteered at countless chamber networking events. She is a graduate of Leadership Shiawassee, a chamber talent initiative.

Additionally, in the community Ackerson is a facilitator for Shiawassee County FIST Group. FIST, which stands for Financial Institute Security Team, comprises representatives of law enforcement and financial agencies who work on county security issues. She also supports LAFCU’s partnership with the Perry Public Schools that provides financial literacy curriculum and activities for all grade levels, including operation of a portable branch at the district’s three buildings and a Financial Reality Fair for seniors.
