The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) just wrapped up its effort to have credit unions in Missouri update or verify their branch listing information on CUNA's A Smarter Choice website. This consumer-facing website allows users to search for and locate credit unions by the branch.
To ensure the accuracy of this helpful website, MCUA asked all credit unions in Missouri to check their information in the A Smarter Choice database. As a thank you, MCUA entered any credit union that updated its records on November 4-25 into a raffle for a $100 Visa gift card.
The winner of the $100 gift card was Health Care Family Credit Union (St. Peters). In the spirit of the season, they decided to use the winnings to purchase more gifts for their adopted family from St. Louis Children's Hospital. Employees have been raising money for this family through dress down Fridays and individual donations.
"When we received the gift card from MCUA, we knew right away we were going to put it towards the family we had adopted from St. Louis Children’s Hospital," says Sam Davis, of the HCFCU Marketing and Member Services department. "The gift card was the cherry on top of what was already a successful project for us."
MCUA stresses the importance of having accurate information for our members and potential members. This is a key factor in being accessible and convenient to consumers.
