AltaOne Collects Member Signatures On Petition Supporting Exemption
AltaOne FCU is collecting member signatures on a petition supporting the credit union tax exemption. The petitions are placed near brochures explaining the credit union difference and have been distributed at the $400-million CU's nine branches. AltaOne noted that at one 2,600-member branch some 347 signatures were collected on the first day. "We want our members to be informed of the tax exemption issue but also to have a good understanding of the difference between credit unions and banks," said CEO Robert M. Boland. The signatures will be forwarded to the California Credit Union League's Government Affairs office.
