HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (6/24/08)--Altura CU, Riverside, Calif., is the 2008 recipient of CUNA Mutual Group’s Roy F. Bergengren Award. The award, named for the credit union pioneer, was presented Saturday at the closing session of CUNA Mutual’s 2008 Discovery Conference.

Altura opened its doors 51 years ago and ended 2007 with more than $1 billion in assets and nearly 112,000 members. “We pride ourselves on being actively involved in the credit union movement by enhancing our employees’ professional development, educating our members on credit union advocacy issues and being a positive influence in our community," said Mark Hawkins, president/CEO of Altura. "This award validates all our hard work.” The credit union is a leader in the development and training of staff in the principles and philosophy of credit unions and has been named a "Top Company to Work for in the Inland Empire" and the "Best Company to Work For" by regional publications and their readers. Altura ranks member service as the No. 1 way it differentiates itself from the competition. It offers online banking, Web bill pay, e-statements, online banking demonstrations, investment portfolio, and eVISION online trading. It also provides small-business services including lending, checking, and savings options geared for business. The credit union supports its community through contributions of more than $300,000 annually, and time and energy. It supports education-related causes, including youth efforts, and provides scholarships, teacher awards, essay contests and financial literacy projects. The credit union also supports employees’ volunteer efforts. Last year, its employees volunteered more than 2,000 hours in the community.
