Hanscom FCU reaches out to military domestic partners
HANSCOM AFB, Mass. (10/3/11)--Hanscom FCU, based at Hanscom AFB, Mass., is reiterating its support for military and civilian members and their families--including domestic partners--in a newspaper ad campaign created in the wake of the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy in the military. The ad in the Hansconian. a local military base newspaper, reinforces the credit union's long-held policy of membership for significant others and household members, and highlights its status within the military as an affirming organization dedicated to inclusion. Its purpose, said the credit union, is to encourage members who serve in the military to feel comfortable handling their finances at the $912 million asset Hanscom FCU. "With the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, Hanscom FCU's members can be more open in the workplace about their personal relationships," said Scott Post, senior vice president of strategy and delivery. "In the past, members may have been reluctant to have two names printed on their checks, or take other actions that could reveal the status of their relationship." By reaching out with its message of inclusion, the credit union said it aims to continue growth in its military service area of membership. "Even people who are not directly affected have co-workers, family members and friends who are," Post said. "These are people that they care about. A number of our employees have thanked us for running the ad," he added, noting a staffer saw the ad and told him she felt proud to work at the credit union.
