Credit Union of America’s Great Bend branch staff were excited to opened their doors and showcase the newly remodeled interior and advancements in technology during an open house held Aug. 19. The Great Bend Chamber of Commerce and Ambassadors hosted a special ribbon cutting commemorating the remodel for the local staff and members. 

Kelly Higgins, assistant vice president of retail operations at the Great Bend branch, said the same services are available but with a different look and feel, referencing the new TAP Tellers. He went on to say that what hasn’t changed are the friendly faces many have come to know, all of whom are there daily to assist customers with their banking needs. 

Credit Union of America supports several chamber programs such as the Business Showcase, held annually to welcome educators and staff back to school.

“We have a great relationship with CUA,” said Great Bend Chamber of Commerce President Megan Barfield. “Both their local staff and Wichita staff are wonderful to work with and truly care about the Great Bend area.”

CUA has been in business since 1935, when it was chartered at East High School as the Wichita City Teachers Credit Union. The Great Bend location opened in 1975, following the official name change to Credit Union of America. It is now located at 4708 10th St., Great Bend.

A total of 80,000+ customers are served across CUA’s 14 locations. Learn more at
