LIVERMORE, Calif., May 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UNCLE Credit Union, serving four counties in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Central Valley, re-elected Chung Bothwell as Board Chairman for the 2019-2020 term. Now commencing her twelfth term in this critical role, Bothwell has served in varied capacities on UNCLE Credit Union’s Board of Directors for more than two decades.

Her education includes a Juris Doctor (JD) and a Master of Laws (LLM) degree, as well as a Master of Business Administration (MBA). Throughout Bothwell’s time with UNCLE, she has worked diligently with Congress to advocate on behalf of credit union members, and has helped initiate impactful financial literacy programs in communities the credit union serves. Bothwell is a 2017 recipient of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues' J. Alvin George Outstanding Volunteer Award.
