    Delta Community Credit Union Reaches 300,000 Member Milestone

    Georgia’s Largest Credit Union Sees Record Membership

    ATLANTA (July 24, 2014) – Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), Georgia’s largest credit union with assets exceeding $4.6 billion, announces it has reached a membership of 300,000, a record in the Atlanta-based company’s 74-year history. Delta Community attributes this achievement to its employees’ commitment to excellent customer service, member satisfaction and its history of investing in the communities it serves.

    “Delta Community’s growth just in the past nine years is nearly equal to that of our entire first 65 years of business,” explains Hank Halter, Delta Community CEO. “We want to be Atlanta’s preferred place to bank, known for providing our members honest value, superior service and trusted advice. Our continued growth and high member satisfaction scores confirm that our members appreciate our differentiated approach and commitment to all the communities we serve.”

    Delta Community supports the local markets it serves by investing in programs that foster financial literacy and physical well-being. In 2013 alone, the credit union raised $650,000 for organizations such as Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, schools, Chambers of Commerce programs and other non-profit groups that were awarded grants from the credit union’s Philanthropic Fund.

    Delta Community’s membership growth has also enabled it to increase employment to more than 700 employees at 26 branch locations in four states. In addition to being Georgia’s largest credit union, Delta Community ranks as the 22nd largest credit union in the nation. For more information, visit www.DeltaCommunityCU.com.

    About Delta Community Credit Union

    Delta Community Credit Union was founded in 1940 and today serves the entire metro Atlanta area, including residents of the 11 surrounding counties and employees of top businesses, such as Delta Air Lines, Chick-fil-A, UPS and RaceTrac. Delta Community is a state-chartered credit union organized under the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, and its deposit accounts are federally insured through the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. It chooses to operate as a not-for-profit credit union so it can give back earnings to its members and their local communities. Unlike a for-profit bank, Delta Community is owned by its members, not individual or institutional investors. Customers become member-owners when they open and maintain an account.
