15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union - #8 You are in Control
#8 -- You are in Control!
Credit unions are democratically controlled by their members. That means, as a member, you have a say in the direction of the credit union. Ever feel you've been held hostage by a big company that changes policies that hurt consumers? If so, you should bank at a credit union where you can have a voice in who sits on the board of directors and sets those policies. Obviously, most members don't want to get involved in how the credit union is run, but isn't it nice to know you have a strong voice if you see things moving in the wrong direction!
The League's new consumer education book 15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union lets the consumer know that their interests guide the credit union.
Member credit unions can order the booklet online by visiting the 15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union page on the MA Credit Union League website, You may also view online by clicking on the flipbook link. A pdf of the piece is available for those credit unions that would like to get the booklet printed locally.
