Banks Vs. Credit Unions: What’s The Difference?
The owners are the key difference. While banks have stockholders, credit unions are owned by the people who bank there — the members.
Every person who opens an account with Directions Credit Union owns a “share” in the organization and has a say in how it is run. This is primarily illustrated through the credit union’s annual meeting and board of directors. Board members volunteer their time and are ultimately responsible for the credit union’s direction.

How Do Credit Unions Benefit Members?

Credit unions provide members with services that help keep you informed and point you toward a rewarding financial journey.
