TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (9/3/09)--Credit Union 24, a credit union-owned ATM and point-of-sale network, announced that six credit unions recently joined the network. The credit unions are:
* Lion’s Share FCU, Salisbury, N.C.; * Ashtabula County School Employee CU (ACSE), Ashtabula, Ohio; * Mint Valley FCU, Longview, Wash.; * Enfield (Conn.) Community FCU; * Radford (Va.) Pipe Shop Employees FCU; and * Family Savings FCU, Gadsden, Ala.
Lion’s Share FCU joined the network because its members are located throughout Southeastern U.S., according to John McGrail, Lion’s Share CEO. “Lion’s Share FCU represents a work force that has significant presence in the Southeast region,” McGrail said. “The credit union is experiencing incredible growth as it embraces the challenge of catering to a geographically dispersed membership.” ACSE CU signed on to the network because of its large tourist population. Visitors who are members of CU 24 participating credit unions can use ACSE CU’s ATMs, said Mike Riesterer, CEO of the credit union. CU 24, Tallahassee, Fla., offers credit union members with access to more than 100,000 ATMs nationwide.
