Supplement Focuses on CU Advantage
An in-depth, 12-page supplement within a recent issue of the Orange County Register, the largest newspaper headquartered in Orange County, focuses on the credit union difference!

The six articles within the Oct. 31 supplement featured interviews with staff from the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), and representatives from six Orange County area credit unions—Eagle Community CU, NuVision FCU, Orange County's CU, SchoolsFirst FCU, Southland CU, and Wescom CU.

Among the topics discussed in The Credit Union Advantage supplement were the advantages and benefits of credit unions, how consumers can join credit unions through the asmarterchoice.org website, how credit unions can assist with retirement plans, credit union community outreach efforts, and debunking false ideas about credit unions. One article featured Bite of Reality, the interactive youth financial education program sponsored by the Richard Myles Johnson Foundation.
