Credit Unions Collaborate

For years, Credit Unions serving Southwestern Manitoba have collaborated together on projects aligned with cooperative principles that benefit members and communities.

These Credit Unions have included any or all of the following:

Austin, Amaranth, Beautiful Plains, Catalyst, Crocus, Erickson, Minnedosa, Portage, Strathclair, Sunrise, Vanguard & Westoba.

Recently, the logo (seen above ) was voted in by the group to represent their joint involvement in community initiatives and a few online resources under the banner, “Manitoba Credit Unions” have been published:

These twelve Credit Unions are pleased to announce their collective support of the upcoming Royal Manitoba Winter Fair (RMWF) in which they are collaborating to increase the profile of Credit Unions in the area.

This year, the RMWF takes place from March 30th – April 4th, 2015 in Brandon at the Keystone Centre.

The RMWF is one of Western Canada’s largest agricultural events where people see show jumping and heavy horse competitions, livestock sales and displays, hands-on agricultural awareness programs, live entertainers, over 300 commercial and agricultural exhibits and more.  Year over year, around 110,000 people attend the weeklong RMWF.

Staff making up the group of Credit Unions will work alongside each other throughout the week, staffing the tradeshow booth, ‘Guest Services’ function and will then debut ‘Credit Union Family Day’ on Wednesday, April 1st, 2015.

This one day event will feature children’s performers, Sharon & Bram, a fiddling contest, significant Credit Union signage throughout the venue and special activities taking place at the tradeshow booth on Credit Union Family Day.

If you are in Brandon, MB, anytime between March 30th – April 4th, please stop by and say, “Hello”!
