Tim Baldwin, the recently retired president and CEO of San Antonio Credit Union, has been singled out by The League of Southeastern Credit Unions for his outstanding service.
The League of Southeastern Credit Unions recognized Baldwin’s important contributions to the credit union movement by awarding to him the 2019 Distinguished Service Award.
The award is conferred on one credit union professional each year who exemplifies lifelong service to the credit union movement, service that reaches beyond the person’s credit union itself.
Baldwin spent his entire credit union career – more than 30 years – as the leader of San Antonio Citizens Federal Credit Union, which is based in San Antonio.
During that time, he expanded the institution from:
- $22 million in assets to $258 million in assets
- One branch to five branches
- 4,263 members to 16,668 members
Baldwin also expanded the credit union’s field of membership twice, allowing all residents of eastern Pasco and Hernando counties to join.
During more than 30 years at the helm of the credit union, Baldwin’s leadership was acknowledged in the field when he served as the Tampa Chapter of Credit Unions Board as president, vice president, treasurer and secretary, and on the board’s Governmental Affairs Committee from 1991 to 2006.
Baldwin also served as a director on the board of the Florida Credit Union League from 2000 to 2009, and advocated for the passage of the bill, HR 1151, The Credit Union Membership Access Act.
In addition to these accomplishments, he mentored a child from eighth grade to graduation, and has served his community in other ways, including these:
- Florida Hospital/AdventHealth Foundation Board from 2006 to present
- Kiwanis Club from 1995 until present
- Board of Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Central Florida
- Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church choir member
