How I would explain the credit union difference to a potential new member
We are family. Family is with you through thick and thin. But, when you are family, you respect each other and support each other. You don't want to get kicked out of the family. So, you stay in touch and develop relationships with the family. It's the same in a credit union. We'll be there for all your life events, but when times get tough, we want you to stay in touch and do what you can. We'll work with you and help you get to better times.
