Washington Federal Credit Union welcomed members of the community to the establishment for a Business After Hours event on Wednesday evening.
Business After Hours, a program organized by the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce, allows the chance for community members to tour a business after closing time to get a behind-the-scenes peek at its operation and speak one-on-one with employees.
In addition to the Business After Hours event, Washington Federal Credit Union was celebrating another important occasion: 100 years of serving local communities.
“We’re excited to celebrate Washington Federal’s first 100 years in banking with our Salt Lake City neighbors! This event is our chance to say ‘thank you’ to the community for their support and trust,” said Regional President Marlise Fisher. “Throughout changing economies, Washington Federal has been committed to offering sound and safe banking. My team and I are honored to help continue to make Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas great places to live and do business.”
In addition to Price’s branch, Washington Federal is a national bank that operates 238 branches in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Nevada and New Mexico. Established in 1917, the bank provides consumer and commercial deposit accounts, financing for small to middle market businesses, commercial real estate and residential real estate, including consumer mortgages, home equity lines of credit and insurance products through a subsidiary.
