Credit Union of America celebrates refurbishment of its Great Bend branch
Staff at the Great Bend branch of Credit Union of America were excited to open their doors and showcase the newly remodeled interior and advancements in technology at an open house on August 19. The Great Bend Chamber of Commerce and Ambassadors hosted a special ribbon cutting commemorating the renovation for staff and local members.
Kelly Higgins, assistant vice president of retail operations at the Great Bend branch, said the same services are available but with a different look and feel, referring to the new TAP Tellers. He went on to say that what hasn’t changed are the friendly faces many have come to know, all of whom are there on a daily basis to help clients with their banking needs.
Credit Union of America supports several chamber programs such as the Business Showcase, held annually to welcome educators and staff to the school.
“We have a great relationship with CUA,” said Megan Barfield, president of the Great Bend Chamber of Commerce. “Their local staff and the staff in Wichita are both great to work with and really care about the Great Bend area.”
The AUC has been in business since 1935 when it was accredited to East High School as the Wichita City Teachers Credit Union. The Great Bend location opened in 1975, after the official name change to Credit Union of America. It is now located at 4708 10th St., Great Bend.
In total, more than 80,000 clients are served at the 14 AUC sites. Learn more about www.cuofamerica.com.
