Linn Area Credit Union Receives Top National Ranking

Team members high five

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, December 12, 2016 – Linn Area Credit Union has been recognized with a #1 national ranking from Callahan & Associates, an independent research firm specializing in the credit union industry.

The top ranking was for the Return of the Member (ROM) scoring system. The ROM metric considers three core credit union functions: savings, lending and product usage. The calculation indicates how well a credit union serves its members and the impact it has on the community. Credit unions are divided into groups by asset range.

“We’re so proud and thrilled to be #1 in the nation when it comes to returning value to our members,” says Jenny Lorenz, President and CEO of Linn Area Credit Union. “Linn Area’s mission is to help people accomplish their financial goals, and we do everything we can, every day, to make sure our members’ needs are met.”

Linn Area Credit Union was the only Iowa credit union in its asset range ranked in the top ten.
