As a credit union member, you’re in good company. Nearly 100 million people in the United States, or one in three Americans, are also members of a credit union. As credit union membership continues to grow to exceed the 100 million members milestone, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and America’s Credit Unions® are celebrating, and you can join the fun.
Send a Selfie, Share Your Story
Credit union members are also owners of their financial institutions, and that’s a great reason to feature faces and personal stories to show what 100 million credit union members look like. View the diverse gallery of credit union members at www.americascreditunions.org and the reasons why they are proud to belong to a credit union. Then, check out the instructions to send a selfie and share your story too!
There’s also an interactive Membership Map on the America’s Credit Unions website with interesting facts from each state. Did you know 100 million people, hand to hand, forming a chain, would stretch more than three times around the earth?
