A few months ago, Credit Union 1 was honored to again be namedone of the top 49 businesses in Alaska by Alaska Business Monthly. Our credit union currently employs over 350 Alaskans in communities ranging from Ketchikan to Nome! In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2018, we’d like to highlight a few of the many women who have helped build (and continue to improve) our organization. In a pool of 72 manager and supervisor positions at our credit union, 58 of these roles are filled by women. WHOA!
Happy International Credit Union Day, Alaska! It’s our favorite time of year again, when credit unions around the world celebrate our unique “people helping people” purpose. This year’s ICU Day theme is “Dreams Thrive Here” – which is a pretty great differentiator that makes your local credit union a special place to be. Unlike banks, which serve customers and pass along income to select stockholders, credit unions exist to serve our member-owners. We’re not-for-profit, and everything we do is to better support YOU!
