This year’s ICUW Theme is entitled “Members Matter Most” which means that Acadia is focused on celebrating their members this week, but it is evident that they seem to do this throughout the entire year. In the last year, Acadia FCU has provided their members with new products and services including a mobile banking app [AcadiaGO], rewards checking and savings accounts [Kasasa Cash and Kasasa Saver], a social media presence [Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest] and, as a result of the merger with St. Agatha FCU, a fourth branch.

International Credit Union Week has given Acadia FCU another chance to recognize their members’ loyalty by celebrating them. Goodies and refreshments are available at their branch locations and a Spirit Photo Contest is taking place on their Facebook Page.

“This year’s ICUW theme made us want to involve our online members in addition to our branch visitors,” Kate Dumond, Marketing Manager at Acadia FCU said. “Many of our members lead very busy lives and don’t always have time to visit our physical branch locations, so this gives them the opportunity to take part in the festivities through the wonderful world of technology.”

The Spirit Photo Contest on Acadia FCU’s Facebook Page encourages Facebook Fans to upload their photos showing their Acadia spirit. All entries must be received by the end of business hours on Friday, October 19. The winner will be announced on Monday, October 22, and be rewarded with a $50 Gas Card.

“We are trying to show appreciation for all of our members by introducing new and innovative ways to connect with them, because as the International Credit Union Week theme states: Members Matter Most,” concluded Dumond.
