One of the highlights of the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting was the “Power Pledge” station where members made their own personal commitments to save. Every member who makes a pledge will have an opportunity to double any savings made from the date of their pledge.
“National statistics show that the average savings rate for Americans has plummeted following the economic downturn,” stated Kathy Scarbrough, Chief Communications Officer. “As a credit union, we were looking for a simple way for members, particularly those who are not saving, to start the process. With the Power Pledge, each member establishes his or her own personal financial goal and has a chance to be rewarded for remaining disciplined enough to stick to that goal.”
