FORT ST. JOHN, BC, May 29, 2013 — North Peace Savings and Credit Union (NPSCU) has been honoured by the Marketing Association of Credit Unions with an Achievement in Marketing Excellence award. The awards - which were presented in Whistler on May 28 - showcase the most impressive, effective and creative marketing and communications in the credit union industry.

NPSCU received recognition with an award in the "Special Events" category, for the 2012 Movie Night in Taylor event. The feature was projected on a 3-story inflatable movie screen at dusk, and attendees enjoyed free hot dogs and popcorn. While the District of Taylor has about 1,400 residents, NPSCU has been able to provide full-service banking 72 hours a week through innovative Video Teller Machines that connect Taylor residents with live tellers in Fort St. John.

"We're particularly proud of this award, which highlights our commitment to North Peace Savings and Credit Union members in Taylor, and the entire community there," says NPSCU CEO Mitchel Chilcott. "We were delighted to provide this entertainment to the families and individuals in Taylor, and look forward to serving them in the future."
