Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been celebrated annually on the third Thursday of October. Each year, the international event affords the opportunity to remember credit unions’ proud history and promote awareness of and support for the credit union difference. This year’s theme – Local. Trusted. Serving you.™ – underlines the commitment to their communities and trustworthy member service that credit unions today embody. Heritage Federal Credit Union strives to uphold these commitments daily, as confirmed by one member in a recent member survey, “Heritage Federal Credit Union has always made me feel that my business is valued, important and appreciated. This means everything to me because although I may not be the biggest customer I am treated with respect and courtesy…treating customers right is what makes you great.”
