LOC Places 2nd for
National Youth Award
This award honors leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of youth and adult financial literacy and is named after Alphonse Desjardins, a credit union pioneer known for introducing youth savings clubs and in-school “banks.”
In order to be considered for the national award, LOC first won at the state level for our asset category. This was second conservative year LOC received a first-place state award.
LOC’s award entry highlighted:
• Growth in our 21-branch student-run credit union program that saw a 36 percent increase in dollars saved, 22 percent increase in transaction numbers and 44 percent increase in new accounts compared to the previous year
• Partnerships with local libraries for financial education programming during summer recess LOC will be formally recognized at the CUNA Government Affairs Conference in March 2019.
