Our Innovations Continue To Get Noticed

November 17, 2015 in Latest News


Nominated in not one but three categories for the 2015 Sunshine Coast Business Awards and here is why:

  • Excellence in Living Smart Service & Product

We were nominated as having successful services and products around sustainable solutions which goes towards a sustainable lifestyle. It was great that after 31 years our innovations continue to get noticed. The products involved with the nomination were for our Cool Home Loan and Advantage Plus Home Loan, Solar Loan, Green Star Car Loan and Green Appliance Loan. All but one of our lending products recognised in this category!

  • Education & Training

We were nominated by Maleny Chamber of Commerce for our Financial Literacy Workbook being taught to Year 10 Students at Maleny State High School. As a result of the publicity about the workbook we have been approached by Beerwah State High School who is interested in implementing the workbook into their 2016 curriculum for Year 10 and 11 students.

  • Excellence in Social Responsibility

Social responsibility for the credit union is about developing strategies that have positive outcomes in the community in which we live and operate in. The creation and implementation of the free teaching resource “Maleny Credit Union Financial Literacy Workbook” fits into the ethos of social responsibility. Maleny Credit Union also practices socially responsible investment by:

  • Advancing loans to members for environmentally sustainable purposes;
  • Facilitating members donations to local, national and global organisations;
  • Assisting micro finance groups where possible.
