CU is first in West Virginia to hit 300M assets
WEIRTON, W.Va. (2/18/20)--First Choice America Community FCU, based in Weirton, W.Va., is the first credit union in West Virginia to surpass $300 million in assets, according the Daily Times Online (Feb. 16). During First Choice's 71st annual membership meeting, West Virginia Credit Union League President Ken Watts explained the credit union has continued to grow when other financial institutions have had difficulties and it continues to stand as the largest credit union in the state, the newspaper reported. Watts noted that although 2009 did not have a lot of bright spots, "One of them was right here with your credit union." Board member Edward Kennedy said First Choice has been able to increase the number of loans and deposits while keeping its delinquencies lower than many other banks and credit unions.
