“Something your competition is not likely to copy.”

In the world of R & D (rip-off and duplicate) it’s becoming harder and harder to differentiate ourselves from the competition. Credit unions are not as “sharing” as they once were for fear of R & D. But if you did something that your competition is NOT likely to copy – then you should shout it to the world.

Such is the case of Greater Nevada’s newest branch (as seen in CU Journal online):
