Newburgh, IN — Heritage Federal Credit Union earned high rankings among credit unions in the state of Indiana in the Return to the Member ranking, as reported by Callahan & Associates* in the 2010 third quarter rankings.  Heritage Federal Credit Union was ranked the number one credit union in Southwestern Indiana.

Callahan & Associates promote the philosophy that credit unions exist to serve members, and they developed the Return to the Member (ROM) scoring system to measure how well credit unions follow this philosophy.  ROM is composed of three components that reflect the central credit union functions of lending, savings, and product usage.  The rankings determine how well credit unions by asset base are doing in their fundamental task of delivering economic benefit and good product to their membership.

Ruth Gaon, CCE, President and Chief Executive Officer of Heritage Federal Credit Union, said, “Our top ranking among our peers in Southwestern Indiana in the Callahan & Associates Return to the Member ranking is a reflection of Heritage Federal Credit Union’s commitment to serving our 38,756 member-owners through our products and services.  As the credit union continues to grow, our employees never lose sight of our number one goal:  providing outstanding service to our members.  Being ranked the top credit union in Southwestern Indiana is an accomplishment in which our member-owners, volunteer board of directors, and employees can all take pride.”
