President's Column: New Year’s resolutions and a look ahead to some great solutions.
As we move into 2015, isn’t it time to reevaluate your financial relationships? An average member can save almost $300 a year by using their credit union to the fullest. Are you paying too much for the privilege of banking with a mega-bank? Is that service you are using with them something that we can help you with? Is there a loan or mortgage you have with another financial institution that should be with your credit union?
At Greenville Federal Credit Union, our focus continues to be on our member owners. Your locally managed and locally controlled credit union takes your welfare very seriously. You are not a number to us, but a person with hopes and dreams that we can help you to achieve. The tag line, “Join and Prosper,” is more than just a marketing phrase. The more services you utilize with your credit union, the more you will prosper or benefit. It is the reason that we exist.
In 2015, Greenville Federal Credit Union is making some exciting enhancements. We are revamping our website, adding a new web app for mobile banking and remote deposit capture, and improving our Youth Accounts. We are also investigating Apple Pay and we hope to have something to report to you very soon. The world is changing rapidly and your credit union is adapting quickly to meet your needs.
We will also begin a project to modernize the interiors of our branches to better serve you and your experience. We want all of our branches to offer technology and comfort, while improving the face to face relationships with our staff. This total project will take over 18 months, but we think that the disruption will be worth it.
As you consider your financial relationships in the coming year, I do want you to know where we are going as your financial institution. But I also want you to know that as we adapt, one thing will never change. Our focus is to our member owners and their well-being.
I hope all of you have a joyous and prosperous New Year.
President, Greenville Federal Credit Union
