@Vancity (banking) Buzz in this week’s issue of the @GeorgiaStraight


Every week our friends at The Georgia Straight provide us with a preview of what you’ll see on – and in – their paper that week. They are the source for lifestyle and entertainment in our city and along with their robust online presence they’ve always released a print edition, distributed everywhere each Thursday. This week, as it’s Christmas, their publishing schedule is a little bit different and you might see copies of the paper as early as this evening.


This issue is their 2,456th and on the cover this week is Banking on Values. Vancity president and CEO Tamara Vrooman is part of a global movement to redefine the role of financial institutions in the 21st century.

They’ve also got a package of articles on Personal Finance HERE.
