Allegiance Credit Union Compliance/BSA Officer Sharon Koppari has graduated from Southwest CUNA Management School, a three-year professional development program for credit union executives and professionals housed on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.

Koppari began her tenure with ACU in August 2002 as a member service representative, and subsequently served in numerous roles and positions, including the vice president of financial services. In addition to her varied experiences, Koppari is a credit union compliance expert and bank secrecy act compliance specialist with designations and certifications granted by the Credit Union National Association.

Focusing on advocacy, asset liability management, innovation, leadership, and strategic thinking, SCMS is heralded as a preferred institute of development for credit union employees who are in management/management-track positions. Graduates of the rigorous program are tasked with completing a capstone project. Entry into the program is exclusive, with only 55 available slots each year.

About Allegiance Credit Union

Allegiance Credit Union, formerly Federal Employees Credit Union (FECU), was chartered in February 1963 under the Oklahoma State Banking Laws. Originally located in the basement of the Federal Courthouse, FECU moved into the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building upon its completion in 1977. On April 19, 1995, FECU would lose 18 of its 33 employees in the bombing of the federal building, drastically changing lives and dramatically ushering in a new era of focus for the institution. In February 2002, FECU became a community charter, extending membership to the six counties surrounding Oklahoma City. On May 1, 2003, FECU became Allegiance Credit Union (ACU). ACU continues to grow in asset size, membership, and branch locations. The legacy of FECU, its restoration, and the continued growth as Allegiance Credit Union, makes members and employees alike proud to be credit union people.
