BMI Federal Credit Union
2021 CUNA Diamond Award Winner for Crisis Management Response
The past year has impacted our community in so many ways, from the immediate health and safety concerns, to widespread financial insecurity, to the hardships we all face day-to-day. Since the onset of this crisis, we have considered the term "essential business" to mean more than just a label. For BMI Federal Credit Union, it is a call to action.
Each year the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) celebrates nationwide excellence in community-based banking with the highest honor for Credit Unions: the CUNA Diamond Awards.
We are so proud to share that BMI Federal Credit Union was named the 2021 CUNA Diamond Award winner for Crisis Management: Efforts to Present Awareness and Response for Crisis Management.
A new category this year, this award was given in acknowledgement of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic in providing financial wellness and education to our members and community.
“We know the devastating financial impact this pandemic has had on our communities,” says BMI Federal Credit Union President and CEO, William Allender. “We are so humbled to be recognized for our efforts to help our members and community through this unimaginable crisis. Their continued trust and support means everything to us.”
