Lisa Barshinger Named 2022 Credit Union Ambassador!


First Capital Federal Credit Union’s Community and Business Development Manager, Lisa Barshinger was named the CrossState Credit Union Association’s 2022 Credit Union Ambassador during the CrossState Annual Conference May 22-24, 2022 in Atlantic City, NJ. The annual contest, which draws applicants from across New Jersey and Pennsylvania, asked credit union staff to share a project that would improve or enhance their credit union, department, or the credit union movement. Lisa’s project discussed Financial Wellness Wednesdays, a virtual forum where employees at our business partners could go to talk to someone from the credit union. This came about during the pandemic when our team could not do on-site visits and lunch and learns. As the Credit Union Ambassador, Lisa will represent CrossState at Association events for the next year. 
“We could not be any prouder of Lisa,” said Sue DeStephano, President & CEO. “Lisa truly exemplifies the credit union mission of people helping people. She is always looking for new ways to help our members.”
Lisa started her career in the credit union industry in 2004 and has been with First Capital in a business development capacity for the last 10 years. Lisa is dedicated to the financial success of not only the members of First Capital but the York County community as well. Financial education is near and dear to Lisa’s heart which is why she spends time giving free seminars on important topics such as Budgeting, Understanding Your Credit, and her personal favorite, Couponing. She serves as the York County Economic Alliance Ambassador Chair and the West York Area School District Foundation Board President. She is also a member of the Buy Local Coalition and volunteers for various organizations including Hospice & Community Care and Junior Achievement…just to name a few.
