The ceremony took place at the Boise Centre and many of Icon’s staff and Connie’s family were in attendance. After her video aired, she gave a heartfelt speech where she touched on her upbringing, her time in the Girl Scouts (both as a scout and later as an employee) and on the importance of her family through her long and successful career, which ultimately led her to the helm of Icon Credit Union admist the Great Recession. Connie spoke about the challenges and opportunities she faced as a new leader of a small but promising credit union and credited her successes to having an amazing board of directors and a wonderful team of employees around her, assisting with carrying out her mission of creating an organization guided by five cultural values: integrity, drive, enthusiasm, respect and leadership.
