SCARBOROUGH –Town & Country Federal Credit Union congratulates Michael Jackson, director of strategic initiatives, on completing the prestigious Credit Union National Association’s Management School. Jackson graduated from the three-year, executive education program, which is held in Madison, Wisconsin, in July.

“We believe it’s important to promote an environment of learning for our staff, and are proud of Michael’s commitment over the course of the past three years to spending two weeks each summer attending CUNA Management School. He made sacrifices to spend time away from his family and from Maine in the summer, so completing the program represents a lot of hard work on Michael’s part,” said David Libby, president and CEO of the credit union.

CUNA Management School includes exams, projects and an oral presentation, and provides participants with an opportunity to learn and interact with credit union representatives from around the country and world. As part of completing the program, Jackson achieved the Certified Credit Union Executive designation.

“This designation demonstrates the highest level of aptitude in credit union leadership,” said Kristin Ryan, director of learning events at the school.

Asked to reflect upon his accomplishment, Jackson, who has worked at the credit union for more than a decade and began his career there as a teller, expressed gratitude to the credit union for supporting “my ability to pursue learning opportunities and fostering an atmosphere that encourages employees to seek education and knowledge.”

As Maine’s second largest credit union with nearly 40,000 members, Town & Country is a full-service financial institution offering a wide range of financial products and services to people who live, work, go to school or worship in Cumberland and York Counties. Designated as one of Maine’s “Best Places to Work” for the past seven years, the credit union has $390 million in assets, and is part of the second largest branch network in the country.
