YUMA, Ariz. -- It's getting to be old hat, but sure enough seven years in a row, the $344 million AEA Federal Credit Union been named "The Best Financial Institution in Yuma County" by the local paper, which reported the results this week of local polling.
"In our community of 90,000 which in season swells to 200,000, it's pretty neat to win this kind of recognition since we have the major banks, three community banks plus branches of Navy Federal," boasted Denise Sweet-McGregor, executive vice president.
The "Best of Yuma" competition is sponsored by The Sun newspaper with votes submitted via mail and internet by local readership.
"We consider this honor as very special and we don't take it lightly," said Sweet-McGregor. "It tells us that our members appreciate good service and quality financial products. Continually seeking new ways to reach higher levels of member satisfaction is a primary organizational objective for us."
