MONTPELIER, VT— VSECU, a credit union for everybody in Vermont, was recently recognized and received the prestigious 2014 Community Credit Union of the Year Award from the Credit Union National Association.
VSECU was one of four credit unions, among the 2,200 community credit unions serving members in the nation, honored during an awards presentation held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Rob Miller, CEO of VSECU, accepted the award on behalf of the credit union and stated, “It is with great pride to accept this award on behalf of the employees at VSECU who come to work every day with a mission driven purpose to help improve the quality of life for all Vermonters.”
The award honors credit unions that consistently excel in the advancement of credit union ideals, are proactive in their communities and meet the needs of their own diverse membership. Credit unions selected to receive the award demonstrate exemplary displays of credit union principles and service. The yearly judging process considers three aspects of each credit union applicant: member impact, community impact and financial impact.
“Members are always first at VSECU with a focus on Vermont values of integrity, hard work, protecting the environment, independence and equality. This award reflects how our credit union brings real value to Vermonters and our Vermont communities above and beyond that of being a provider of financial services,” said Miller.
The other three credit union award recipients were AmeriCU CU, Rome, NY, Atlernatives FCU, Ithaca, NY and Southwest 66 FCU, Odessa, Texas.
