DULUTH, Ga. (8/28/14)--The Georgia Credit Union Affiliates highlighted the credit union movement's 100 million memberships milestone recently by recording interviews with members of Georgia United CU who described in their own words what consumers like best about credit unions.
The $981 million-asset credit union in Duluth was the impromptu stage for GCUA's Jason Golden, who asked members, "What's the one thing you love the most about your credit union?"
Auto loans, member service, shared branching, low rates and convenience, the members responded.
One member even shared his experience of improving his financial standing. "They gave me a lot of good advice on how to help my credit and build my credit. I'm looking really good credit-wise because of them," he said.
"It's a little more hometown, and a little more personal," another said. "I think they are just a little bit more about the individual."
The video is only part of GCUA's celebration of the movement's milestone. On Monday, the league will select the winner of its Facebook selfie contest. Contestants shared a photo of themselves on GCUA's creditYOUnion Facebook page with the #100MM hashtag for a chance to win $100.
GCUA also encouraged members to upload their photos to the national 100 million memberships site, americascreditunions.org.
