Winnipeg, MB - March 06, 2019
On January 30, 2019, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce announced Assiniboine Credit Union (ACU) as the winner of the Spirit of Winnipeg Award.
We were nominated and selected for our outstanding effort and commitment to make Winnipeg a better, more prosperous community through corporate leadership and social responsibility by The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
“We’re elated and honoured to be recognized for our efforts and commitments. For over 75-years, we’ve been deeply entrenched and dedicated to social values making us one of the most community-minded financial institutions in Manitoba.
The way we do business represents our promise to members and our commitment to the communities in which we live and work. The co-operative values that guide us ensure we remain financially sound while being socially, environmentally and ethically responsible.”
— President and CEO, Kevin Sitka.
Assiniboine Credit Union has come a long way in 75 years, growing from only $50 in assets to more than $4.5 billion.
We haven’t veered away from the ideals of our founders three-quarters of a century ago. We're privileged to have been able to make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of Manitobans.
On March 6, 2019 — in the presence of 400+ business and community leaders — ACU will accept the Spirit of Winnipeg Award at the 10th Annual Spirit of Winnipeg Awards Gala at the Club Regent Event Centre.
We would like to congratulate all the other organizations who were recognized for their efforts in making our city better. We look forward to sharing our story and hearing theirs.
