Promise Zones, Ethnic Chambers of Commerce and a pillar in the Community

BOULDER CITY, NV (March 17, 2021)

“Credit unions are a pillar in their community. They aren’t just a branch or a building,” said Todd Lane, President/CEO at California Coast Credit Union when speaking with Susan Mitchell, CEO of Mitchell, Stankovic & Associates and Founder of the Underground. “Our initiatives are part of our DNA. They aren’t a one and done, they are part of who we are.”

Ideas into Action to be a pillar in your community:

  • Build Relationships
    • Invest in small businesses. Have a drive-thru turkey party for your employees. Care about your members wellbeing.
  • DEI is Not a Strategy
    • Diversity, equity and inclusion must be at the core of your culture, not a strategic initiative that changes from year to year.
