Yvette Segarra Celebrates 30 Years at the League!

Yvette Segarra, the League’s Manager of Member Experience, Conferences & Events, is celebrating her 30th anniversary at the New Jersey Credit Union League. A fixture in the New Jersey credit union system, Segarra started at the League in 1987 as a receptionist. In her current position, Segarra touches almost all areas of the League’s business and is the League’s longest tenured employee.

“From Day One Yvette’s impact on the credit union movement here in New Jersey was clear – and it has been profound,” said NJCUL President/CEO David Frankil. “There isn’t a credit union leader in this state that hasn’t been touched by Yvette’s charm, professionalism, and skills in some way, shape, or form. She has seen the system here in New Jersey evolve over the years and is an infinite source of wisdom as we learn from the past and carve out a path for the future. She is an integral part of the League and I congratulate her on her impressive tenure here on our team.”Her passion for the credit union movement is evident, as many of the members and vendors consider her the heart and soul of the New Jersey Credit Union League and the embodiment of the “people helping people” philosophy.

Segarra oversees all of the League’s special activities and events, including the Annual Golf Tournament, Reality Check Conference, and other events. She also manages the League’s Annual Meeting and Convention, from soliciting exhibitors, speakers, décor, entertainment, food, and venue choice. She is involved in all areas of this premier event.

Aside from her event planning duties, Segarra enjoys helping our member credit unions with their Reality Fairs throughout the state.

In 2013, she was named a “Credit Union Rock Star” by CUNA’s Credit Union Magazine.

Prior to joining the League, Yvette worked for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in New York City. Herself an organ donor, she is very involved with the New Jersey Sharing Network, which educates the importance of Organ and Tissue Donation. In her spare time, when not with her daughter and grandchildren, she travels extensively or is in the kitchen preparing gourmet meals.
