League Publishes 15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union

This Association recently unveiled a new consumer education tool it is making available to help credit unions explain who they are, what they do and why they are the only financial institution that the consumer should use.  It is entitled: 15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union.   This concise book written by Association President Paul Gentile lays out the facts in clear, easy to understand and engaging language. 
It takes topics that consumers sometimes don’t quite get and it makes them crystal clear.  Things like cooperative ownership of the credit union and why that is a tremendous benefit, or deposit insurance or the fact that credit union fees are so much lower.  On every page the book illustrates the Credit Union Difference!
There are many ways that credit unions can put this great little book to work.  It could be a part of classroom education efforts with young adults or it could be used as a handout for new members or prospective members at the credit union.  The League also has an electronic “flipbook version” available so a member credit union could add it to their website and members could read it there. 
To take a closer look at the book and to order copes for use in your credit union just click on this link and visit the 15 Reasons Why You Should Only Bank at a Credit Union page on our the League website.
