10 Things You Should Know
About Consumers Credit Union

Consumers Credit Union (CCU), chartered in 1930, has thrived during its first century as a member-owned, member-focused credit union. That’s because CCU has consistently championed the credit union philosophy of “people helping people,” a philosophy that has defined the organization from our inception, and has helped us win many awards along the way.

There are other factors that impact the success of any company over such an extended period of time. Yet the most important factors – those that truly drive the trajectory of an organization – are those flowing from its core philosophy.

At Consumers Credit Union, we believe such factors, when woven together, combine to form our DNA. As with an individual’s DNA, each factor helps shape exactly who we are and what we do, as well as how and why we do it.

We have identified ten such factors that have helped CCU maintain laser focus on our core principle of people helping people -- ten strands that weave together to form our DNA and help ensure we are the people in your corner.
