FOLSOM, Calif., Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues are recognizing SAFE Credit Union's commitment to advocate for credit union members and their communities with three awards this year.
The organizations named SAFE as the "California Advocate Credit Union of the Year," and awarded the credit union with the "Social Impact Award." SAFE Board Chair Terrance Tremelling also received the "Volunteer of the Year Award."

"We are thrilled that SAFE's community and social impact work in the Greater Sacramento region is being recognized on a statewide scale."
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues represent not-for-profit and member-owned financial institutions and advocate for policies that allow credit unions to continue to impact the lives of their members.
The leagues presented the honors during their 2023 REACH Conference. SAFE's advocacy award recognizes the credit union's commitment to drive political action to further credit union policies. The social impact award spotlights SAFE's work to make a difference in communities and enhance members' lives.
Board Chair Tremelling's award showcases his passion to work on behalf of credit unions while inspiring others to do the same. He says the award renews his commitment to "protecting members' financial information and helping them to build their financial freedom."
"The landscape is constantly changing in today's financial industry," says Tremelling. "We have a duty to our members to ensure their interests are protected."
He adds that SAFE reaches out to government representatives to share the credit union's message with support from the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues and the Credit Union National Association.
