SPIRE wins 2016-17 Torch Award for Ethics
Oct 02, 2016
SPIRE Credit Union has been awarded the prestigious Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota’s ® (BBB) 2016-17 Torch Award for Ethics! This award recognizes premier area businesses which display an outstanding level of ethics and integrity in all aspects of their day to day operations. Nominees submit an extensive award entry portfolio to BBB, where a panel of independent volunteer business and community leaders review the entries and choose the winners. This is a tremendous honor, and although awards are only a by-product of the work we do for SPIRE’s members, employees and communities, it is incredible for SPIRE. Every employee, board member, volunteer, and everyone who operates OUR credit union had a part in earning this recognition!
The BBB Torch Awards ceremony was held October 27 at the University of Minnesota. KOOL 108’s Lee Valsvik emceed the event, and over 300 people were in attendance.
