EVP Addresses Class of 2018 at LDI Graduation
On December 6, 2018, the Carolinas Credit Union League held a graduation ceremony for the Leadership Development Institute (LDI) Class of 2018. The event featured several speakers, including Brian McKay, SC Telco Federal Credit Union Executive Vice President and a 2016 LDI alumnus.
In his charge to this year’s graduating class, McKay stressed the importance of collective education and individual application. “Take the relationships you’ve built this year with all the leaders in this room, take the systems that you’ve learned, take the personal experiences that you’ve had, put them all together, and you do you,” he encouraged. “Don’t try to imitate another leader—even a great one. Don’t try to take the same approach to every challenge. You’ve got to be steadfast in your principles and values, but you’ve got to be flexible in your leadership and your application.”
In addition to McKay’s participation, SC Telco was also represented by two new graduates: branch manager, Zak Gasparich and internal audit manager, Kelly Jones. The intensive one-year program is designed to help credit union leaders develop critical thinking and practical leadership skills. To date, the South Carolina-based credit union boasts a total of six LDI graduates.
