Editor's Note: The following is a Richfield Bloomington Credit Union press release.
RBCU, a credit union serving Richfield, Bloomington and Edina, has announced that André Thibault, assistant vice president of marketing, has been accepted into the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Twin Cities program. The program is a nine-month series designed to inform future leaders about critical issues facing local communities and inspire them to make a difference through personal commitment and involvement.
Each year the program selects approximately 50 people from the public, private and non-profit sectors who share a commitment to improving their communities. This year’s program will focus on metropolitan issues, economic development, politics and media, health, education, community safety, arts and culture, and the vision for the metropolitan area.
Thibault, who is in his 13th year working at RBCU, supports numerous community causes in his professional and personal life. In his role at RBCU, he manages the credit union’s community outreach budget, which supports a number of local school activities and non-profit organizations through financial donations. Thibault currently serves on the St. Helena Catholic School’s School Advisory Committee, Volunteers Enlisted to Assist People (VEAP) Scramble Committee, the Richfield Public Schools Foundation Board and is serving his second year as a member of the Bloomington Chamber of Commerce board of directors. He is also a Neighborhood Block Captain, committee member for the Richfield High School Transition Program Work Experience Advisory Committee and committee member for the Bloomington Heritage Days Festival.
“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.”
