Cumberland Business Association and First Credit Union Member Benefit Program
gilakas’la / čɛčɛ haθɛč, We respectfully acknowledge that this work is taking place on the unceded
traditional territory of the K’ómoks Nation.
Program Overview and Goals: The small business sector plays a key role in the economic and cultural
diversity of the Village of Cumberland and First Credit Union’s vision of Building Financially Healthy
Communities. With this in mind, First Credit Union (FCU) is thrilled to partner with the Cumberland
Business Association (CBA) to offer discounted FCU business accounts during their inaugural year. This
member benefit is intended to encourage existing and emerging small businesses operating in the Village
of Cumberland to become CBA members so that they can further engage in creating memorable
experiences through collaborative promotion, events, and economic development.
Program Details and Eligibility: During the 2021 calendar year, FCU business account holders (not
including Pay As You Go accounts) who are CBA members in good standing and whose businesses are
located in the Village of Cumberland will be eligible for a 50% rebate on package account fees. This rebate
is available to both current and new FCU business members for 2021. Simply show proof of your CBA
membership, including the date of membership (e.g, CBA membership confirmation email) to your
Cumberland branch member service representative. From that date forward your business account will be
credited 50% per-month on package account fees from the month of CBA membership until the end of
2021. All rebates will be credited to your FCU business account monthly.
Program Timeline: This program is effective from January 01, 2021, to December 31, 2021.
Program Inquiries: Please contact Cumberland Branch Manager, Craig Keeping at
