Awards & Recognition

We don't do what we do for the awards or recognition, but if doing the right thing gets us a trophy or plaque - we'll make room for it on the shelf.

It's our goal to better lives.

At Commonwealth Credit Union, we are very excited about the awards and recognitions we have received throughout the years. We are truly honored and feel every award speaks to the culture we have created internally and our passion to better the lives of every member. These awards motivate us to continue making CCU the best choice for our staff and our members.
