Dakotaland Federal Credit Union Announces Taylor Retirement

Madison, SD - November 1, 2016 With nearly 24 years in the Credit Union business, Lynnette Taylor has announced her retirement from Dakotaland Federal Credit Union. “With a remarkable career as a Credit Union Manager, Lynnette has gratefully devoted her time to the community of Madison and the well-being of her membership. Her years of dedicated service are commendable and her leadership will be greatly missed,” stated Credit Union President, Dan Cumbee.

Taylor accepted the position of Manager at the Interlakes Federal Credit Union on March 12, 1993. Under Lynnette’s direction, the Madison office has doubled the size of its membership and grown from approximately $925,000 to over $12,100,000 in assets, which equates to over 1,200% growth in her nearly 24 years. During Lynnette’s tenure, Interlakes Federal Credit Union merged with Dakotaland Federal Credit Union in October of 2011.

Also to her credit, the current Madison office location on Washington Avenue, was originally designed, built and completed under Taylor’s supervision. Lynnette’s desire to better the lives of her members and support her local community has earned her the respect and support of those around her. In addition to a life-long commitment to the Credit Union, Lynnette and her late husband, Bill, were active community members and proud to call Madison their home. “Moving on is simple. It's what I leave behind that's hard. How lucky I am to have known so many credit union members and staff that will make saying goodbye very difficult,” commented Taylor. Lynnette wishes to thank all for their friendship and patronage. She is confident the new manager will enjoy the same satisfaction that she has relished for 24 years.

Taylor plans to complete her career on December 30th. Upon retiring, Lynnette intends to relocate to the warmer weather of Atlanta, Georgia where her Grandma duties will be activated to full time status. A Retirement Open House is planned for Friday, December 30, 2016 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Dakotaland Federal Credit Union Office at 1004 S. Washington Avenue in Madison. The public is welcome.
