GoLocal Members are North Bay's Best

Every year, North Bay Biz magazine holds a reader's poll to determine the Napa, Marin, and Sonoma County businesses that deserve the "Best of" title in a number of business categories.  This year, Sonoma County based (and GoLocal member) financial institutions swept top honors in a number of categories including "Best Business Bank", "Best Credit Union", and "Best Company to Do Business with in Sonoma County".  Below is a table breaking down these categories and the honors awarded to our Bank Local members.

GoLocal Banks and Credit Unions - North Bay Biz "Best of" 2010
Category North Bay's Best Gold Medal
Best Business Bank Exchange Bank Summit State Bank
Best Credit Union Redwood Credit Union Sonoma Federal Credit Union
Best Company to do Business with in Sonoma County Redwood Credit Union First Community Bank


A special congratulations to Redwood Credit Union for winning North Bay's Best in both the "Best Credit Union" and "Best Company to do Business with in Sonoma County" categories.  As icing on the cake, Redwood also won the 2010 "Best Bank" award from the North Bay Bohemian - an impressive feat considering they aren't even a bank!  (Technically, credit unions are not banks, but most offer the same banking services)

With such a great selection of local companies to choose from, the choice to Bank Local is easy.  Lower fees, the "North Bay's Best" service, and millions of dollars more for Sonoma County - It's a no brainer.  Follow this link to learn more and find your new local bank or credit union.
