Myth #3: A credit union isn’t any different than a bank Expand/Collapse

Yes, we are!
We are different by design!

Meet Darla Brenholen, WC
Investment Specialist

It is true that as a full service financial institution, we are like banks in many ways - but we are very different too. In a world often too focused on profits, a credit union is a meaningful and relevant alternative - our profits are for your good, not our pockets. That’s why Darla always puts our members first.
