Cooperative Center FCU: Celebrating Open & Voluntary Membership

Cooperative Center FCU recently showcased the cooperative principle of open and voluntary membership at their chamber mixer event this November. The gathering highlighted the essence of what it means to be part of a credit union – a financial community that is open to all without gender, social, racial, political, or religious discrimination.

At the heart of the event was the message that the credit union is more than a place to bank; it's a place where every member has a voice and a vote. The mixer's theme, "Discover the Treasure of Membership," was a nod to the value that each member brings to the credit union's community. The interactive treasure hunt not only served as an icebreaker but also as a metaphor for the benefits and rewards of being a credit union member.

The credit union's commitment to the community was on full display as attendees were encouraged to participate in the Toys for Tots drive, underscoring the credit union's role in social responsibility. This act of giving back demonstrats how membership extends beyond financial services to supporting and uplifting the local community.

The event was a practical example of the credit union's dedication to providing an inclusive environment for all members. As they networked, shared stories, and learned more about the services of the credit union, attendees experienced firsthand the democratic nature of a cooperative, where each member has equal opportunity to contribute to and benefit from the institution.

The chamber mixer by Cooperative Center FCU was more than just a social event; it was a reaffirmation of their commitment to open membership and community engagement, ensuring that the credit union remains a welcoming space for all who wish to join.
