Dykstra, Eagle Community CU Interview
California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues President and CEO Diana Dykstra appears this week alongside Eagle Community CU's CEO Bill Birnie in a seven-minute video interview discussing the credit union difference, how credit unions operate, and member benefits. The segment aired nationally on PBS' "In Focus", a television show hosted by Martin Sheen.
"Credit unions are owned by the members that make deposits and take out the loans, so there is a natural trust built into that. They are local and in their communities, so it makes a real difference when you know the people who run the institution and the people who are using the services of the institution," Dykstra said in the video.
The interview also details Eagle Community CU's service and dedication to its members and the credit union movement.
"At Eagle Community Credit Union, we've adopted the core values of professionalism, integrity, and engagement. We've woven those core values in everything we do," Birnie said. "Those core values define us and define our culture."
