Travis CU CEO Patsy Van Ouwerkerk was recognized as Woman of the Year by Solano County's 2013 Women's History Month Committee for her inspirational leadership and development of innovative programs in financial and life skills to help consumers become financially successful. Travis CU also launched a Facebook.com promotion focused on expanding its presence in the social media sphere, where the credit union's 10 Grand for 1 Fan Giveaway will pick one lucky Facebook fan to win $10,000 if the Travis CU Facebook page reaches 50,000 fans (aka likes) between Feb. 4 and March 31. Additionally, Travis CU won the Fairfield Daily Republic's Readers Choice Award for the 15th time in 16 years for being the best mortgage lender in Solano County. Also, Travis CU plans to help members who are facing lost wages due to furloughs because of the U.S. government's early 2013 budget cuts, also known as sequestration—lowering loan payments and extending the terms of loans.
