2017 - Juntos Avanzamos Designation from the National Federation of CDCUs

Cooperative Federal is honored to receive the prestigious Juntos Avanzamos designation from the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions

The Juntos Avanzamos designation, translating to “Together We Advance,” is a testament for credit unions which have a vision and commitment of serving the Hispanic community. Cooperative Federal brings a full range of accounts, loans, and financial education and counseling services to homeowners, small businesses, and other individuals – and all available in Spanish. We also offer our services to individuals with ITINs, regardless of citizenship status because we believe in empowering and including all members of our community.


Christina Suave, Assistant Treasurer & Chief Operations Officer, and Ron Ehrenreich, Treasurer & CEO, accept the Juntos Avanzamos procolamation, presented by Cathie Mahon, President & CEO of the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions, on October 23, 2017.

Cooperative Federal is the only credit union in Central New York that has received this designation and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than locally with our friends at the Nostros Radio Gala and with CNY credit union leaders during a ceremony hosted by the Federation.


Leyanis de la Peña, Branch Manager, Maribel Gonzalez, Member Service Lead, and Jim Doyle, Accounting and Operations, accept the Juntos Avanzamos  ceremonial flag at the Nosotros Radio Gala on October 14, 2017.
