FORUM Credit Union is proud to announce winning first place for the Alphonse Desjardins Adult Award in the $1 Billion+ asset size category in the Indiana statewide competition. CUNA (Credit Union National Association) created the Desjardins program to recognize leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of financial literacy for all ages.
Plaques were presented to statewide winners at the ICUL (Indiana Credit Union League) Chairman’s Awards Banquet on Friday, September 10, as part of the League Convention. FORUM Chief Operating Officer, Andy Mattingly, was present to accept the award. FORUM’s entry focused on the “financial readiness” resources and content the credit union provided to people during times of financial uncertainty. Resources ranged from infographics, to a dedicated YouTube channel, to a letter campaign targeting members who were most affected financially from the COVID-19 pandemic.
“At FORUM, we want our members to feel financially ready no matter what circumstances they find themselves in. All teammates played a role in winning this award by doing what is right for our members, educating them on their financial choices, and serving them with respect and professionalism each and every day,” said Doug True, FORUM Chief Executive Officer.
FORUM’s First-Place entry will move on to the national level where it will compete at the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) with other state winners from across the country. Winners will be revealed in February 2022 at GAC.
