New Credit Card from U.S. Bank Supports OSBA Services to Members, the Public

MINNEAPOLIS & COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 26, 2005--The more than 30,000 members of the Ohio State Bar Association and the citizens of Ohio will benefit from the new OSBA Visa(R) Card from U.S. Bank. The card generates non-dues income to support services to OSBA members and the public each time a new card is activated and repeatedly thereafter each time the card is used.

Cardmembers will have the choice of one of three U.S. Bank credit card products, including the OSBA Visa Platinum Card; the OSBA Select Rewards Visa Platinum Card that earns reward points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise and travel rewards; and the Visa Signature card that carries additional benefits such as dining privileges and a concierge service.

"The revenue generated by this new credit card program will allow the OSBA to enhance services to its members and support public information and education programs the Association undertakes," said E. Jane Taylor, OSBA president.

"The Ohio State Bar Association is a respected institution and we are proud to partner with them to offer a card that supports the numerous public activities and programs that benefit the great state of Ohio," said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank. "We look forward to the many new opportunities that will arise as a result of this program."

Through its activities and the activities of its related organizations, the OSBA serves both its members and the public by promoting the highest standards in the practice of law and the administration of justice.
