In response to the “Call for ‘Bank’ Entries” letter from Gregg Stockdale, and with all due respect to that unique call to action to re-label what we do, I believe that an attempt to redefine what credit unions do as anything other than banking is counterproductive. We draw distinctions from banks in many other ways, such as referring to our customers as members, labeling what are essentially CDs as share certificates, and, of course, in the levels of service and member satisfaction that we as credit unions all strive for.
