Arizona State Credit Union Chosen as Better Business Bureau's 2009 Ethics Award Finalist
Phoenix, Ariz. - For the second consecutive year, Arizona State Credit Union is a proud finalist of the 2009 Better Business Bureau (BBB) Business Ethics Award, sponsored by the BBB of Central, Northern, and Western Arizona. This award consists of an annual program to gain public awareness and recognition for businesses that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their business practices in an ethical manner.
Arizona State Credit Union, the only financial institution to be recognized, was selected as one of three finalists in the business category with more than 150 employees. With more than 350 submissions received by the BBB, the Credit Union was a highly viable candidate for this recognition because it is defined, operated and guided by positive ethical principles.
"Because the fundamental definition of the organization is based on cooperation and service, every act of Arizona State Credit Union is guided by these positive principles," said David E. Doss, President and CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. "We are honored to receive this award which recognizes the efforts of all of our associates and the Credit Union's continued focus on conducting business honestly and ethically."
The BBB Business Ethics Awards were established for the purpose of recognizing firms whose business practices and related activities reflect the mission and principles of the Better Business Bureau. The BBB continues to work toward a fair and honorable marketplace by shining a spotlight on companies that maintain ethical business practices. Companies of different sizes are selected by an independent panel of volunteer community leaders based on criteria established by the Council of Better Business Bureau International Torch Award.
