O’Fallon, Mo. – West Community Credit Union has been recognized through the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Finance Council as one of the top two credit unions between the $250 million and $1 billion asset size category for providing an economic benefit to Members.
It is estimated by CUNA that West Community provided $5.9 million in direct financial benefits to Members over a 12 month period.
The industry award was based on a CUNA study conducted on economic benefit provided to their Members by using West Community products and services as opposed to local competitors. Other credit unions across the country also participated.
“This award is truly a representation of the credit union difference and a great statement about our success in serving our mission,” stated Jason Peach, President/CEO of West Community Credit Union. “It is so rewarding to have achieved this kind of impact for our Members and the communities we serve, and I could not be prouder of our staff.”
Credit Unions are not-for-profit, member-owned financial service cooperatives, founded on the basic principal of, People Helping People. We generally provide financial benefits to members through lower rates on loans, higher savings and fewer fees than banking institutions. At West Community Credit Union, we believe in the idea that we’re all connected, and have a vested interest in the financial success of every member because our members’ success ensures the success of the credit union.
