The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) recently announced its winners for the national awards competition, naming Kirtland Federal Credit Union (KFCU) as a first place winner of the Louise Herring Award in the $1 billion and under category. In addition to the New Mexico state-level award, KFCU earned acclaim among credit unions nationwide, placing as a national winner for the award. KFCU won the award for its innovative programs including:

  • Service to Those Who Serve program, opening a new micro-branch inside the Kirtland Air Force Base Exchange;
  • the Jump Start Program, an innovative program that provides up to 3% of the home price toward a down payment for first-time homebuyers;
  • Home & Brew Happy Hour Learning Series, happy hours that were held at various local breweries with people on hand to answer questions and take the fear out of the first-time homebuying experience.

According to CUNA, “the award is given to a credit union for its practical application of credit union philosophy within the actual operation of the credit union. It is awarded for internal programs and services that benefit membership.” Additionally, the award is chosen, based on policies that support and demonstrate “People Helping People.”

“It’s a great honor to be recognized for the work we are doing in the community and on behalf of our members,” said Tom Shoemaker, President/CEO of Kirtland Federal Credit. “The families and individuals we serve come first, and it’s always been our vision to ensure that we are supporting our membership and helping to financially empower them for the future.”

“The Credit Union Association of New Mexico congratulates Kirtland Federal Credit Union on receiving this prestigious award,” said Paul B. Stull, President/CEO of the Credit Union Association of New Mexico. “To have a credit union of Kirtland Federal Credit Union’s caliber in New Mexico, and one that is so dedicated to serving its members, is a boost for the entire industry.”
