An employee at Richfield Bloomington Credit Union has been accepted into a leadership program designed to inform future leaders about critical issues facing their communities while giving them the tools to make a difference regarding those issues.
André Thibault, assistant vice president of marketing at RBCU, will join the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Twin Cities program. He joins the approximately 50 people who are selected each year for the nine-month program. During this year’s session, they will focus on metropolitan issues, economic development, politics and media, among other topics.
Thibault is in his 13th year at RBCU and manages the credit union’s community outreach budget. He also serves on the St. Helena Catholic School’s Advisory Committee, the scramble committee at Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People and the Richfield Public Schools Foundation board of directors, along with several other community service bodies.
“A main aspect of RBCU’s mission is to strengthen our local communities,” said Pat Brekken, president of RBCU. “Nobody embodies that spirit better than André. He will be a tremendous asset to the Leadership Twin Cities program.”
