CU System
Member tells station Switched to CU to avoid fees
VININGS, Ga. (9/20/10)--The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) provided information for an Atlanta, Ga., television station in which a credit union member explained why she switched to a credit union. The segment aired on 11alive.com Thursday. In it Lisa Dobbs told why she switched to $3.7 billion asset Delta Community CU, based in Atlanta: "I just wanted to be at a place where I didn't want to worry about the fees every month," she told the station. "Not everyone reads their inserts and I just got to the place where there was just one charge too many," she added. Dobbs said Delta Community CU saves her about $150 a year. Credit union spokesman Matthew Shepherd said the Delta Community CU knows a lot of people who don't switch "because they think it will be a hassle." That's why the credit union has designated Oct. 1 for a "Switch From Your Bank" event with staff in the credit union's seven branches standing ready to help make it easier for consumers to switch. CUNA told the publication that credit union membership grew more than 10% last year.
