The Fort Atkinson Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Sue Johnson has been appointed to serve a five-year term on the organization’s Board of Directors. She was nominated by the Fort Atkinson City Council and will be replacing Mary Behling who has completed her term and who will spend 2019 serving the board as past chairman.
“Sue will be a valuable addition to this board,” noted 2018 Foundation Chairman Mary Behling. “Her extensive involvement in the community, her knowledge of local issues, and her financial expertise will serve the Foundation well.”
Johnson has been a member of the Fort Atkinson community since her family moved here in 1978.
She is currently the President and CEO of Fort Community Credit Union, having been with FCCU for 27 years.
Her volunteer resume includes service and officer positions on the board of directors for the Fort Atkinson Historical Society, the Fort Atkinson Music Boosters Association, and the Fort Atkinson Orchestra Boosters.
In her free time, Sue enjoys spending time with her husband Mark and their children Alex and Faith.
“I’m looking forward to joining the board,” stated Johnson, “It is an honor to be a part of an organization that understands our community, its needs and how charitable support can impact lives locally.”
The Community Foundation’s Board of Directors consists of five members, each serving a term of five years. These volunteers are chosen for their community involvement and knowledge of the educational, cultural, civic, public, and charitable needs of the Fort Atkinson area.
Appointments to the Board are made, in turn, by the School District of Fort Atkinson, PremierBank as trustee, the Fort Atkinson Area Chamber of Commerce, the Fort Atkinson Historical Society, and the Fort Atkinson City Council. However, directors represent the community in general and do not represent or act as advocates of their respective appointing bodies.
Members of the Community Foundation’s 2019 Board of Directors are Chairman Kristin Wallace, Vice Chairman Scott Housley, Treasurer Michael Bender, Secretary Loren Gray and Director Sue Johnson. Joining the five voting members are past-chairman Mary Behling and legal counsel James Vance. The Board of Directors is supported by the Foundation’s administrator, Sue Hartwick.
