The Bemidji Pioneer (September 24, 2016) - For the second year in a row, Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union has won the state-level Louise Herring Philosophy in Action award from the Credit Union National Association. The award is given to credit unions for "practical application of credit-union philosophy within the actual operation of the credit union," according to a release.

Affinity Plus won for its efforts to use unique data analysis to determine that more than 1,400 members could benefit from lower mortgage payments and interest rates. Affinity Plus, which has a branch in Bemidji, now joins three other Minnesota credit unions and advances to national judging against credit unions from across the United States. Each, including Affinity Plus, won in its respective financial-assets category. The overall national winners will be announced Feb. 22 in Washington, D.C.
