The Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL) honored six credit union representatives, with more than 175 years of experience between them, at the Iowa Credit Union Convention on September 16-18 at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center in Des Moines.
Larry Ketelsen received the 2015 Heritage Award for demonstrating extraordinary commitment, service and leadership in the credit union movement. Nearly 50 years ago, Ketelsen joined the Clinco Credit Union Board of Directors and he has remained committed to the credit union movement ever since. As a board member, he has provided leadership on a number of different committees helping to guide Clinco through its name change to Members Choice Community Credit Union and subsequent merger with Ascentra. The retired lab technician, who worked for Clinton Corn and Sethness Products, routinely volunteers at his church and Habitat for Humanity.
