Boston Firefighters Wins CUNA’s Membership Benefits Award at GAC

Credit unions returned nearly $6 billion to their communities in the form of lower interest rates, higher savings rates, and lower and fewer fees during the 12 months preceding Sept. 30, 2012, according to the Credit Union National Association’s Membership Benefits Report.
The importance of that benefit is underscored by CUNA’s Membership Benefits Performance Awards. These awards recognize credit unions that most strongly outperform the banking competition in their communities, as determined by a direct comparison of rates and fees.  Based on an analysis of more than 300 credit unions with attendees at this year’s GAC, the award-winning credit unions provide the greatest value, per member household.
In the $75 million to $250 million in assets category: Boston Firefighters Credit Union was at the top.  The report showed the credit union as having saved members $1,769,559.  
Congratulations to credit union President Bernie Winne, the Board of Directors and staff at the credit union for earning this honor.
