On Thursday, October 19, 2017, credit unions around the world will mark International Credit Union Day, a day set aside to celebrate the credit union movement. This year’s theme, “Dreams Thrive Here,” serves as a reminder of the role credit unions like RTN play in helping members achieve their financial goals.
As a not-for-profit financial cooperative, RTN and all credit unions are owned by, and operated for, members. This people-first philosophy doesn’t just mean better service, it translates into a better financial deal for consumers. On average, credit unions offer the same products and services found at other financial institution, but typically at better rates and with fewer and lower fees.
The credit union difference also includes a social mission. Community involvement is a core value of RTN, and we are proud to support local projects and initiatives through financial assistance and volunteer participation.
We think ideas that include people before profit improve lives. This is why we mark International Credit Union Day at RTN. Your membership in RTN helps you, your neighbors and thousands of people around the world follow their dreams.
