AHA Associates Bringing Value

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, businesses across the country stepped up to assist AHA members. In the new podcast series, AHA Associates Bringing Value, the AHA checks in with its business Associates to learn how they are supporting members and leveraging the AHA Associate Program to stay connected with members and help them achieve their goals and objectives.


Episode 1: HealthCare Associates Credit Union Brings Value to AHA Members During COVID-19

Kathleen Wessel, VP, Business Management and Operations with AHA, spoke with Jennifer Kleinhenz, SVP of Strategic Initiatives, and Joseph J. Kregul, President/CEO, for HealthCare Associates Credit Union (HACU). A long-standing Associate, HACU is a full-service, not-for-profit financial cooperative serving those who serve and support healthcare. HACU is member-owned and operated. It aims to keep costs down in order to provide above-market savings rates, below-market loan rates and less-restrictive loan underwriting policies. These policies are increasingly important during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
