San Diego County Credit Union president/CEO elected 2012 chair of statewide credit union trade association

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Teresa Halleck, president and CEO of San Diego County Credit Union (SDCCU), which operates three local East County branch offices in El Cajon, La Mesa and Santee, has been elected 2012 chairman of the board of the California Credit Union League (CCUL), the nation’s largest statewide credit union trade association. Halleck began her one-year term following CCUL’s recent annual meeting and convention held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego.
“It will be an honor to serve as 2012 board chair,” Halleck said. CCUL, based in Ontario, Calif., represents 330 credit unions in California, with more than nine million members and more than $115 billion in assets.
Halleck joined SDCCU as president and CEO in August 2010. In addition to CCUL, Halleck’s involvement in the industry includes service as co-chairman of the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee and as a member of the Department of Financial Institutions’ Credit Union Advisory Committee. SDCCU, San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, operates 28 branches and serves a diverse member base of over 221,000 with assets of more than $5.2 billion.
