<p>I just finished reading Mike Welch's recent publisher's column entitled: "Watch out bankers, here comes credit union offensive." My reaction simply stated? Right On!

I also enjoyed Welch's definition of a credit union. It is very similar to KEMBA's own mission statement: "We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative that exists to enrich the financial well being of our members."
