ICUF Announces Name Change for Golf Classic Event

The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF), the philanthropic arm of the Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL), announced at its annual golf classic fundraiser that the event will now be called the “Be the Light ICUF Golf Classic” in memory of Dale Owen.

Owen was the President and CEO of Ascentra Credit Union in Bettendorf and served on the ICUF Board of Directors for nearly a decade – fulfilling the role of Board Chair for three years. Owen was a fierce credit union advocate who was truly dedicated to improving the financial lives of others. He exemplified the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” and encouraged others around him to be the light in service to others.

“Dale put people first in everything he did,” said Jaimie Miller, Executive Director of ICUF and Vice President of ICUL. “During his time on our board, Dale’s leadership was essential in growing the impact of our programs, touching thousands of Iowans and small businesses. The Iowa credit union community will continue to shine thanks to the light Dale inspired in us.”
