Washington CU Changes Name To Reflect Expansion
BELLLINGHAM, Wash. (9/10/13)--To better reflect its connection with its community and to highlight community membership rules, GaPac Community FCU has changed its name to WestEdge CU. The new name was announced Aug. 24.  
 
The name change was made to better indicate that the credit union is open to anyone in Whatcom County, Wash. (The Bellingham Herald Sept. 8).
 
The new name, WestEdge, represents the credit union's dedication to serve, the credit union said. The $52.2 million asset credit union was created in 1952 to serve Pacific Coast Paper Mill employees. That company became part of Georgia-Pacific West Corp., the newspaper said.
 
The name WestEdge is a way of saying the credit union is located on the West Coast and its goal is to give its members an edge, Linda Sant, WestEdge, vice president of marketing, told the paper.
