Credit Union Student Employees Headed to DECA National Competition
HomeTown Credit Union is excited to announce two of our student employees have qualified at the Minnesota State DECA Conference and have advanced to the National Conference in Orlando, Florida. Credit Union employee Amber Holte will be competing in the School Based Enterprise Academy; she, along with two others, have worked hard over the past year to make the Owatonna High School store meet over twenty different requirements that qualified it for finals. Jack Livingston advanced to National’s with a combined score from a Financial Literacy Test and a Financial Literacy Role Play Event. Additionally, he qualified in Financial Consulting, Financial Literacy Promotion and a Business Finance Test. DECA is a nation-wide student organization that prepares its members for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. Owatonna DECA advisor Scott Pierce has said that Amber and Jack’s employment at the Credit Union has benefited them in many ways, helping them to develop interpersonal and professional communication skills. “These are skills that we strive to develop in DECA and without outside experiences like working at the Credit Union, it’s very difficult to do at that level in the classroom” said Pierce. Jack also competes in the Business Professionals of America Club and placed first in Banking and Finance at the MN State BPA Conference. He will be advancing to the National BPA Conference in May in Anaheim, CA. Congratulations, Amber & Jack, on all your accomplishments! We wish you all the best!

Politicians in Washington are considering an overhaul of the federal tax code – and taxing credit unions is on the list of proposed changes.
The credit union tax exemption was established by Congress to assure a low cost banking alternative, as credit union earnings are used to benefit the members rather than returning earnings to a group of shareholders. Unlike banks that maximize profits for a small group of investors, credit unions exist to serve their members, including working families, local small businesses and your community.
HomeTown Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative owned by our members. As a member-owner, please consider contacting your US Congressperson and US senators to ask them not to tax your credit union. Taxing credit unions won’t make a dent in the national budget deficit as credit unions hold only 6% of consumer deposits nationwide. A tax on credit unions is really just another tax on you, as it will impact the benefits you receive as a credit union member-owner.
