SIOUX CITY, IA – Telco Triad Community Credit Union (Telco Triad CCU) celebrated becoming the first Iowa credit union in Northwest Iowa to be awarded the prestigious national Juntos Avanzamos (“Together We Advance”) designation by Inclusiv.

In recognition of the honor, community members, Telco Triad employees, Inclusiv Executive Vice President Pablo DeFilippi, Iowa Credit Union League (ICUL) Vice President Jaimie Miller, local dignitaries, and Telco Triad Board of Directors gathered at Telco Triad’s Morningside Branch at 2550 Glenn Ave. for a proclamation ceremony that began at 10:30 am.
