CUs Roll on as the ‘Best of the Best’
Credit unions deserve a lot of attention for all the positives we bring to our communities. It’s great when we get it.
Did you see this News Now this week? It takes a look at how communities across the nation have been recognizing credit unions as “the best of the best” in a variety of areas. For instance, among the CUs highlighted is Northwest FCU (NWFCU), Herndon, Va.–and its NWFCU Foundation–honored as the Best Financial Institution at a regional Chamber of Commerce annual Youth and Education luncheon. This year, more than 190 students attended.
You’ll love this. At the luncheon, credit unions went up against banks to market their products and services to students and encourage the kids to open an account using play money. The students “voted” by opening an account with what they believed to be the best financial institution. They also evaluated each institution on products and services. NWFCU and its foundation swept all three categories and were voted Best Service, Best Product and Best Overall Financial Institution.
