Board Spotlight: Pete Joslin
AVP, Learning and Development
Northeast Credit Union
We are excited to work with Pete on the CFTEA board of directors. He has used CFTEA for several years to learn more about the financial industry and most recently with remote facilitation in the Modern Classroom Certified Trainer program.
Why did he choose to apply as a CFTEA board member? “I know what CFTEA offers is really useful. I think it is important in the industry to have organizations that provide cost-effective, quality education. I really want to use my learning and development skills to act as a consultant for CFTEA.”
Pete cited the most challenging part of being a board member: “This will be my first time working on a board. I am hoping to learn as much as possible about how I can best serve. I know starting something new can be challenging, but I am really looking forward to it.”
And it is that energy that comes through when Pete thinks about the power of supporting new generations of professionals. “Knowing you have made a difference in someone’s life is the most rewarding thing. I enjoy seeing my students walk away from a class I have facilitated with more confidence gained from the education. I think this translates well into working as a board member, as I know I will be making an impact on many more students’ lives.”
What is one thing that fellow board members might not know about Pete? “When I was 14, I was riding my bicycle and I was hit by a car. I broke many bones and received 128 stitches in my arm and elbow. It was the first time in my life that I really understood I wasn’t immortal (like most kids think they are). I think of this every day and I am thankful for each and every day.” And we are thrilled about your recovery! That type of appreciation and empathy allow Pete to provide powerful contributions to the CFTEA board of directors.
Congratulations on joining the board, Pete, and for taking the time to share your insights as we get to know you better!! Welcome aboard!
