Ohio CUs See Big Member Increase
The Ohio Credit Union League is celebrating what it said was a record, fifth straight quarterly increase in credit union members. Roughly 10,000 Ohioans joined credit unions in the first three months of 2010, the league said.
"The anti-bank sentiment among consumers and a 'flight to safety' are making credit unions a popular alternative," said the league while promoting the "Move Your Money" campaign. The league said the campaign, launched by New York pundit Arianna Huffington has been a factor in boosting member growth.
