Jim Doig, the longtime president/CEO of Sidney FCU, was inducted into the Credit Union House Hall of Leaders. The Hall of Leaders recognizes credit union leaders whose commitment has made a significant impact on the credit union movement at the local, state or national level, and whose commitment has inspired others in the credit union movement.
“I’m really touched and humbled by being included with so many of the people who have done so much for credit unions and the movement,” said Doig. “I’m really not sure I’m as deserving as any of them, but I truly appreciate being included in such a prestigious group.”
Doig was appointed president/CEO of the Sidney, New York-based credit union in January 1997 after already accumulating 20 years of experience in the financial services field, including in the areas of lending, member services, security, compliance, and branch operations.
Throughout his career, Doig has been highly engaged with the credit union movement. Notably, Doig served on the UsNet board of directors for more than 20 years and was chairman for three terms. He has also served on the New York Credit Union Association’s Governmental Affairs Committee and the CULAC/CUPAC board of trustees, and he’s been an active attendee at events hosted by the Association and CUNA.
Additionally, Doig volunteered his time at numerous civic and charitable organizations.
“Jim Doig is not just a leader here in New York; he’s a national credit union leader, and his place in the Credit Union House of Leaders appropriately reflects his countless contributions to the credit union movement,” said William J. Mellin, president/CEO of the Association. “Jim will join many other esteemed credit union trailblazers in the Hall of Leaders, and everyone who visits the Credit Union House will be reminded of his commitment and leadership.”
Since opening in 2001, the Credit Union House has provided credit unions and credit union groups across the country with a coordination center on Capitol Hill. Each year, the townhouse attracts thousands of visitors, including members of Congress and Congressional staffers, business leaders and credit union representatives from around the world.
