Northwest Community Credit Union, based in Morton Grove, is celebrating its 75th year in business.
First organized in 1939 by members of Immaculate Conception Church in Chicago, the credit union has grown into a multimillion dollar cooperative servicing the financial needs of communities in the northwest side of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
Dan Plauda, President/Chief Executive Officer of the Illinois Credit said "only about 100 credit unions have achieved this milestone, and their success is testimony to the important service they have consistently provided to help their members reach their financial goals. "During the course of the year, Northwest Community Credit Union will be having a series of promotions to recognize their milestone anniversary. The credit union is open to the community and provides all the savings and loan products that are offered by banks … but with rates that are superior to those offered by most financial institutions.
"In order to be successful for 75 years it takes a combination of a strong committed board and staff, a great community that recognizes the value we provide, the best financial products and services and attention to member needs," commented Jose Garcia, president & CEO of NWCCU. "Our tagline … We're Here For You … is the philosophy that we live by and being in business for 75 years is proof that we continue to fulfill on this promise."
