Arizona State Credit Union Receives International Recognition with Two Communitas Awards for Commitment to Community Service and Social Responsibility
PHOENIX, Ariz. - Arizona State Credit Union announced it received two Communitas Awards for making a difference in their community in an ethical way. The Credit Union was awarded:
- Excellence in Community Service for creating HelpingAZ.com, an online community forum building a stronger community through job postings, tips and resources and an online discussion board. In its first year, it has grown to over 16,800 online members.
- Excellence in Social Responsibility for the above and beyond efforts of Arizona State Credit Union Associate, Christina Maulfair, who provided outstanding member service to a Credit Union member who was facing a life threatening challenge that was immediately addressed and successfully resolved.
The Communitas Awards are presented by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), to recognize companies, organizations or individuals that donate time, effort or money to improve the communities in which they live or work.
"Arizona State Credit Union lives by its core values and we're honored for the international recognition with these two Communitas Awards," said David E. Doss, president and CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. "We strive to provide assistance to our community not just through our financial services, but through each and every interaction we have with our members and the Arizona communities we serve."
"Judges were impressed by the community leadership shown by providing an informational website to help all Arizonans affected by the economy," said Ed Dalheim, Communitas director. "By creatively using its resources to help others, even non-members, Arizona State Credit Union is clearly an organization that exemplifies the spirit of communitas."
