Owner Share Investment

When you join a credit union, you are more than a customer – you become an owner and voting member of a co-operative. Each Creative Arts member is required to maintain a minimum investment of $25 in Owner Shares.  This investment is not a fee – it represents your membership in, and ownership of the Credit Union. This investment belongs to you, and is refundable to you if you close your membership. In addition, Owner Shares may earn annual dividends, at the discretion of the board of directors.

UPDATE: Business Deposits
