EAU CLAIRE – Royal Credit Union (RCU) received the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) 2015 Community Credit Union of the Year Award. RCU was named the 1st place winner in the over $250M in assets category. The award, which recognizes outstanding achievements in credit union community involvement, was presented at this year’s CUNA Community Credit Union Conference & the Federation Annual Conference held in September in Phoenix, AZ.
The Community Credit Union of the Year Award honors credit unions that embody credit union ideals, get involved in their community and meet the needs of their own diverse member-bases. Each credit union applicant is judged on three criteria: Member Impact, Community Impact and Financial Impact.
“We are honored to receive this award and it is a direct reflection of the commitment and authenticity with which our team members live our core purpose and values,” said Rudy Pereira, Royal Credit Union President & CEO. “We work each and every day to create a positive impact in the lives we touch. We share with award with our Members who provide us with the inspiration to be the best we can be on a daily basis.”
This year’s awards will be presented to credit unions in two asset categories, under and over $250 million in assets. Each category has a first place winner and an honorable mention runner-up. The 2015 Community Credit Union of the Year Award winners are:
• Royal CU (WI), 1st Place Winner-Over $250M in assets;
• Bayport CU (VA), Honorable Mention- Over $250M in assets;
• Northeast Community CU (TN), 1st Place Winner-Under $250M in assets;
• Soutwest 66 (TX), Honorable Mention-Under $250M in assets;
“The winners of this year’s award prove that the generous, cooperative spirit of the credit union movement extends beyond the credit union itself,” says James Carrick, CUNA vice president of learning events. “We are proud and honored to recognize the accomplishments of these credit unions that have gone above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of their communities.”
