Things have definitely changed in the 25 years Nissila has be with SJCU. The CU assets have grown to over $116 million and there are now over 11,400 members. Nissila has always kept the CU on the leading edge of technology with a clear vision for the future. “Judy is the ultimate leader, mentor and role model,” says SJCU Vice President Cathy McCarthy, who has worked with Judy since 1984. “She is a very hands on president, even stepping in as a receptionist or teller when needed.
