Lauren DeAngelis
VP of Professional Development

Barbara Lehew
Director of Meetings & Conferences

The Carolinas Credit Union League is well aware that a knowledgeable, engaged workforce makes a difference within each credit union and among its membership. In creating the league, management and staff fully explored existing and potential methods for professional development support. The results include a comprehensive set of league and third-party resources offered by an enhanced team focused on providing the best opportunities for credit unions of all sizes throughout North Carolina and South Carolina.

Lauren DeAngelis was named VP of professional development in February 2016, having previously served as director of professional development. In her new role, Lauren will plan and direct the delivery of innovative professional development services.

Lauren has more than twenty-five years of experience in financial services, most recently in development of more than 250 sales executives at Sallie Mae. Having led the charge with a team of forty, she has keen insight into staffing, operations, and development and is well positioned to help credit unions address challenges and find solutions to ensure success within today's competitive culture. Lauren has extensive experience in training, event and project management, customer service, and sales, and she is a member of the Association for Training & Development.

Barbara Lehew is director of meetings and conferences at the Carolinas Credit Union League. She has spent her entire adult life in the financial arena and the past twenty-three years within the credit union movement, having come to the league in 2002 from SC State Federal Credit Union. Her experience in various roles within financial institutions is invaluable in her understanding of daily life within them and the needs that result.

Barbara works with the Professional Development team to create educational events for credit union employees and management teams. Much of what she does in negotiating contracts, securing venues and speakers, and refining event agendas may go unnoticed but is reflected in the value participants attribute to their experiences. Barbara also has been praised for her delivery of quality teller training.
