Vale Kenneth Miller AM
It is with sadness ACUA notes the passing on 27th December of Kenneth Miller AM at 90 years of age. An esteemed colleague and mentor in the Australian and International Credit Union Movement, Ken became involved in the early 1950s, and went on to become Chairman of the League and a Director of the Association of NSW Credit Unions. Ken retired as General Manager of the NSW Teachers Credit Union in 1987, and in 1988 was awarded membership of the Order of Australia "for service to the Credit Union Movement”. He was laid to rest on 5th January 2015 at Rookwood Catholic Crematoria and Cemetery.
