Banks aren’t really there for you. When you look at the big bank model, it’s easy to see there are many holes in how they operate. That’s because their primary goal isn’t to work for you. 

Imagine a financial institution designed to put your needs first. A better way to bank, minus the bank. Credit Unions are a way that you can increase your banking happiness and take back control. Because their solution is about your needs, your vote and your profits.

 

Launching today, a new campaign brought to you by [Credit Union name] and Credit Unions of Alberta is about the pitfall of picking banks – and the credit union solution. With a short and funny video, we poke a bit of fun at the banks, but also ask Albertans: is there a better way?

Rocky Credit Union CEO Retirement & Appointment

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE, AB (July, 2017) – The Board of Directors for Rocky Credit Union have announced a change in the organization’s top leadership post.  Doug Glessing, who has served as Rocky’s Chief Executive Officer for the past 6 ½ years, is retiring at the end of July.  Doug’s successor is Randall Sugden.  Randall brings 10 years’ of leadership experience from his previous position as VP, Finance with Rocky Credit Union.

Glessing has enjoyed 40+ years of credit union experience.  Glessing started his career in Saskatchewan at Credit Union Central and the Credit Union Deposit Guarantee Corp, where he worked for 13 years.  Glessing then went on to be GM and CEO of a number of Credit Unions in Saskatchewan and Alberta for the next 21 years before coming to Rocky Credit Union in 2011.  Glessing stated "I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work for over 40 years in various capacities within the CU System, a financial services system that strongly supports employees that are dedicated to serving Members and communities first. I do feel it is very fitting and I am extremely proud to have finished my career as CEO of Rocky CU, a CU that indeed epitomizes the grass roots CU system philosophy of exceptional service and dedication to Members and Community". 

Driven by both cooperative and credit union values, Randall Sugden has spent the last 10 years in the VP, Finance role where he has demonstrated unwavering dedication in his ability to provide strategic, visionary leadership in helping the credit union achieve organizational success.  He is an active member of the local community and is well respected by his peers and colleagues.

Randall shared the following message on acceptance of the position:

“I am very excited to become Rocky Credit Union’s CEO and I look forward to our continued success.  I have had the honour and pleasure of working with Rocky for the past ten years and will continue to work with the Board and staff to make RCU the best possible place to work while keeping our member needs top of mind.  I look forward to working directly with the Board of Directors, executive and staff to ensure we are bringing value to our membership.”

March Is Fraud Prevention Month

This year marks the 13th anniversary of the annual education and awareness campaign that began in 2004 by encouraging Canadians to recognize, reject and report fraud.

Recognize, Reject

Thousands of Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life are defrauded each year. There is no typical fraud victim in Canada. Fraud targets Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life. Recognizing fraud is the first step to better protecting yourself.

Fraudsters are professional criminals that know what they are doing. Fraudsters rely on some basic techniques to be successful. These include:

  • developing professional-looking marketing materials;
  • providing believable answers for your tough questions;
  • impersonating government agencies, legitimate businesses, websites, charities, and causes;
  • pretending to be your ordinary supplier;
  • hiding the true details in the fine print;
  • preying on areas of vulnerability, including those needing help with loans or finding employment;
  • asking for fees in advance of promised services;
  • threatening legal action to collect on alleged contracts;
  • falsely claiming affiliation with reliable sources, such as legitimate news sites to support their products or services;
  • fraudsters will often exchange victim lists with other fraudsters.

 

Tips to Protect Yourself from Fraud

  • Don’t be fooled by the promise of a valuable prize in return for a low-cost purchase.
  • Be extra cautious about calls, emails or mailings offering international bonds or lottery tickets, a portion of a foreign dignitary’s bank account, free vacations, credit repair or schemes with unlimited income potential.
  • Don’t be afraid to hang up the phone, delete the email or close your Internet connection.
  • Don’t purchase a product or service without carefully checking out the product, service and company.
  • Don’t be afraid to request further documentation from the caller so you can verify the validity of the company.
  • Don’t disclose personal information about your finances, bank accounts, credit cards, social insurance and driver’s license numbers to any business that can’t prove it is legitimate.
  • Shred unwanted personal information such as bank statements, credit card bills, unwanted receipts, cheques, pre-approved credit applications and old tax returns.
  • Check your credit report every year and report problems immediately.
  • If a scam artist contacts you, or if you’ve been defrauded: Report It! Your reports are vital to the anti-fraud efforts of law enforcement agencies.

Report

How to Report Fraud

Fraudulent or suspicious activity can be reported to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, through its website at www.antifraudcentre.ca, or by telephone at 1-888-495-8501.
