I never got to meet “Mr. Credit Union” but from the stories I’ve heard, he was a man who epitomized passion and energy for credit unions and someone I’d want to model myself after. Proud to be recognized with past winners and Do Some Good supporters Kristin Major and Angela Burnell who share my support for the #BatsforaCause charity slo pitch tourney and #BCChildrensHospital.
I know I am fortunate to work for a “for purpose" organization that supports and recognizes volunteerism and making an impact in our communities. As well, I know I am lucky that our company is part of an industry that values people before profits and strives to achieve something bigger and more meaningful than simply increase shareholder wealth. We may not have the marketing dollars and brand awareness of the Big Banks, but there is a noticeable, positive, difference with credit unions. We have leaders in the industry, Central 1 Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) that will help get that message out. Open an account. Become an employee. Rant over.
