FAA CU 1st in Okla. to receive Juntos Avanzamos designation
OKLAHOMA CITY (7/10/14)--The Cornerstone Credit Union League has bestowed its Juntos Avanzamos designation on FAA CU, Oklahoma City, with $546 million in assets (Leaguer July 9).

Juntos Avanzamos translates to "Together We Advance" in Spanish.

The designation--the first assigned to a credit union in Oklahoma and the 27th overall--recognizes credit unions that successfully complete a rigorous application process that affirms its capacity, commitment and compassion to serve the financial needs of Hispanic families.

"We have been serving the Hispanic population for a number of years and we are committed to serving, empowering and enriching these families," Steve Rasmussen, FAA CU president/CEO, told Leaguer. "This designation demonstrates and strengthens our commitment to help our members in the community build strong financial futures."

FAA CU's second-busiest branch operates from the heart of a Hispanic community in the Oklahoma City metro area, according to Rasmussen.

The branch employs a bilingual staff, and its interior design is intended specifically to engage Hispanic members.

Further, the credit union provides top-quality services geared towards Hispanic members, including:
  • Bilingual services in six of its seven branches;
  • Second chance checking;
  • Credit-building loans;
  • Lines of credit and credit cards;
  • A home loan product;
  • Financial education;
  • A Spanish call queue for non-English speaking members;
  • Signage and marketing materials in both English and Spanish; and
  • Advertising with local Spanish media.
FAA CU will officially be awarded the Juntos Avanzamos designation with a flag-raising ceremony hosted by Cornerstone.
