RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (6/19/14)--CO-OP Financial Services has partnered with Shared Financial Solutions, the service corporation of the Kansas Credit Union Association, to promote CO-OP ATM and CO-OP Shared Branch to its member credit unions.
"We are partnering with CO-OP because we wanted to provide a way for our Kansas credit unions to give their members more access points," said Marla Marsh, president/CEO of KCUA.
"Only about one-third of Kansas credit unions participate in CO-OP's surcharge-free ATM and shared branching networks," said Marsh. "The more credit unions participating, the more member access is opened in Kansas and nationwide, which is mandatory today to compete successfully.
"Many credit union members feel they need to close their account if they move away from Kansas. With CO-OP's nationwide access and large number of outlets, they don't have to!"
Stan Hollen, CO-OP president/CEO said: "We believe we can play a key role in helping KCUA fulfill its mission to support the credit union cooperative system and generate healthy growth strategies for credit unions in the Sunflower State."
