U.S. Utility & Energy Credit Union Participates in Inaugural Pennsylvania Energy Games

Utilities Employees Credit Union, a financial benefits provider serving American utility and energy workers and companies, will serve as a sponsor and participant in the first Pennsylvania Energy Games community event being held September 7th in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region. UECU representatives will be part of the event’s family expo, where they will have a chance to connect with energy workers and their families, and provide financial education materials, special offers, and information on financial services.

WYOMISSING, PA (September 05, 2013)Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU) will share financial education and information on its financial services for energy and utility workers and their families, at the inaugural Pennsylvania Energy Games on September 7th. UECU is serving as an Energy Games sponsor and will participate in the event’s family expo, where they will be able to connect with workers and family members who may sign up for free membership in the credit union. UECU representatives will share financial education materials, special offers, and information on financial services for workers and families in the utility and energy industries.

“UECU is looking forward to connecting with energy and utility workers and their families at the Pennsylvania Energy Games,” says Suzanne Valencia, Business Development Associate for UECU. “We’re excited to help them reach their financial goals and offer them tools through our financial wellness products, services, and education.”

The Pennsylvania Energy Games is a community event for energy workers and their families, which includes heavy equipment and safety-obstacle competitions, kids’ activities, a truck show, food vendors, fireworks, and live music. Details on the event, which is being held in Lycoming County within Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region, are available online at

Workers employed by the Marcellus Shale, energy, utility, or related industries, who take advantage of free membership in Energy People Connect, a professional association for energy employees and families, are eligible for UECU membership. Energy industry professionals and their family members can also join Utilities Employees Credit Union as the employees of a company offering UECU membership as an employment benefit. Like many professionals in the energy and utility services sector, Marcellus Shale workers are often dispersed among rural locations – making UECU, a virtual credit union with 24/7 nationwide access, a logical strategy to serve their financial needs.

“Our credit union has served America’s energy industry since 1934 with the purpose of improving the financial well-being of employees and their families,” says Erica Kunkel, Business Development Specialist for UECU. “We are eager for the 2013 Energy Games – it will be a fun event and a great opportunity to interact with people from Pennsylvania’s energy and utility industries.”

UECU is a full-service financial institution whose member-owners receive the credit union’s co-operative profits in the form of exclusive financial rewards, lower fees, and excellent savings and lending rates. UECU also offers voluntary financial benefits to utility, energy, and related-industry companies and associations, which they can extend to employees and their family members to promote financial wellness, reduce employer health care costs, and enhance worker productivity. Some companies are offering financial wellness programs as a stand-alone benefit or as part of their employee assistance program.
