ONTARIO, Calif. (2/13/12)--The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues now represent more than 90% of the more than 10 million credit union members in both states.
Eight new members--those not affiliated in 2010--either rejoined or joined the league in 2011 and 2012. They are:
- Operating Engineers #3 FCU, Livermore, Calif.
- Cedar-Sinai FCU, Los Angeles;
- E-Central CU, Pasadena, Calif.;
- Pepsi Cola FCU, Buena Park, Calif.;
- Polam FCU, Los Angeles;
- Rolling FCU, Turlock, Calif.;
- Tehachapi (Calif.) FCU, Calif.; and
- Union Oil Santa Fe Springs Employees FCU, Brea, Calif.
"While there are many benefits we see to being league members, probably the two main reasons are all the educational information now available to our employees, and our support of league representatives who constantly lobby on behalf of credit unions," said Michael Donohue, Operating Engineers #3 FCU CEO, whose credit union rejoined the league.
"We appreciate the widespread participation from credit unions, and we're especially pleased to welcome returning members to the league," said leagues President/CEO Diana Dykstra. "Their renewed affiliation adds to the strength of league membership and speaks well of the value we bring to credit unions in our two states."
The number of associate members--those headquartered out of the state that provide services or have branches locally--has remained steady at 17, according to League Membership Director Traci Miller Olszowy. "It is gratifying to see such strong participation--particularly in advocacy and educational activities--from our member credit unions."
