AmeriCU Credit Union wins national award

AmeriCU awarded Diamond Award

ROME, NY – April 03, 2024:  AmeriCU Credit Union has won a Diamond Award by America’s Credit Unions Marketing & Business Development Council for co-hosting the Tunnel to Towers 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit. The annual Diamond Awards recognize outstanding achievements in the credit union industry. The awards were announced at the annual Marketing & Business Development Council Conference recognition dinner on Tuesday evening, March 19, 2024, at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.

The US Army and AmeriCU teamed up to bring the Tunnel to Towers 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit to Griffiss Technology Park in Rome, New York. The mobile exhibit was open to the public for three days in April 2023. This was the first time that the exhibit visited Central New York. The exhibit featured artifacts from the World Trade Center and guided tours from New York City Firefighters who responded to Ground Zero on September 11th.

“AmeriCU was honored to receive this recognition from the council.  We have been serving the armed forces and their families for over 70 years, so this event is very dear to us and resonates with our miliary heritage,” said Ron Belle, AmeriCU President and CEO. “Through sharing a part of our history, we were able to strengthen connections within our community.”

Winning organizations represented 44 states including the District of Columbia. This year, judges reviewed a record 1,451 entries across 37 categories. Only the very best of the best entries received the coveted Diamond Award and from those, a select number were named Category’s Best.  The credit union was previously recognized in 2021 for the ‘Multifaceted’ and ‘Direct Mail – Single or Series’ categories.
