WASHINGTON (3/10/09)--Twenty-eight Minnesota credit unions were recognized as “The REAL Deal” during the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., Feb. 24.
REAL Deal certification recognizes credit union service in loans, financial education, charitable work and partnerships with non profits. The program was created by CUNA and implemented by the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN). “This program is a great way for credit unions to summarize the good works that they do,” said Monica Weber, MnCUN political advocacy director. “Credit unions certified as the REAL Deal set themselves apart from other financial institutions and are passionate about member service.” For a list of the credit unions that were recognized, use the link.
