Ann Steel 1952 - 2014

It is with great sadness that we report the recent death of Ann Steel, NACUW Company Secretary.

Ann passed away on the morning of Sunday, 10th August at her home in Great Sankey, Warrington. Our thoughts are with her husband Peter and immediate family.

A passionate credit union activist and NACUW stalwart for many years, Ann Steel was appointed Company Secretary in July 2010 having previously been a NACUW Director and, before that, a member of the NACUW training team.

Bill Hudson, NACUW Chair, said: "Ann was a highly respected and valued member of the Board who gave many years of unselfish voluntary support to NACUW. News of Ann’s passing has come as a massive shock both individually and collectively. She will be sadly missed by all of us.
    "Her main interest and contribution to the work of NACUW, was the support and development of consultancy and training. Specifically, Ann undertook an extensive training needs analysis of the credit union sector to identify training needs for the new NACUW financial inclusion training programme. Her experience and skills were particularly invaluable when funding programmes and applications were developed."
