Education resume: When it’s about Barack Obama, it’s a bible article Barack Obama: His school credit card may have expired.
But for students of the US president, the credit union was just a handy way to save money, and for a good reason.
Obama was one of the most visible members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) – an association of more than 300,000 scientists and engineers, who hold a vast array of professional and academic positions in various fields.
Its website describes the organisation as a “non-profit research organisation whose mission is to advance scientific knowledge and understanding in the public interest, by promoting the advancement of science in the United States and abroad”.
In a statement, the AAAS said the group had a policy that “allows anyone to open an account with an account holder at any credit union”.
“The AAAS will not accept credit cards from members of any political party or individual, including those who are in contempt of the rules or rules of a credit union,” it said.
However, the statement did not mention that the policy allows a creditcard to be accepted from an account that has not met the requirements.”
The AAAs policy also allows members of AAAs to refuse membership from individuals whose financial condition, personal life, conduct, employment or educational history is not aligned with AAAS membership.”
However, the statement did not mention that the policy allows a creditcard to be accepted from an account that has not met the requirements.
A statement on the AAas website says that the organisation “has a long history of advocating for academic and research excellence in science and technology, and believes that it is vital to uphold the independence and integrity of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)”.
But there is no mention of any credit unions on its website.ABC News contacted the AAPS for comment, but did not receive a response.
The association said on its blog that “our members have the option to choose whether to have their credit cards approved by the AAGS and have their accounts opened at any time”.”AAGS policy allows members to open accounts with any account holder, regardless of membership status or membership level,” the statement said.
It also said that membership of the association is “not a membership fee or membership requirement for the AAWS”.
