We’re excited about our blog launch because it gives us a great new way to communicate with you, our wonderful members. The success of our Facebook page (3,400+ likes!) proves that our credit union supporters enjoy social media and a blog offers us another way to engage with you in a fun, relaxed way.
If you're like most people, you probably already read a few blogs every week. Financial experts, DIYers, stay-at-home moms, bakers, political junkies, sports fans… it seems almost everyone has a blog. They can be heartwarming, educational, amusing, thought-provoking or just out and out fun. And that’s the goal we have in mind for our blog: an eclectic mix of all those things, with a little something for everyone.
Don’t worry; we won’t be selling you anything. We just want to share a more personal part of ourselves so you can get to know the lighter side of the credit union. Everyone here is looking forward to contributing to the blog, from our front line staff, loan officers to the management staff. Because our goal is always to improve your financial well-being, we’ll also share helpful financial tips and recommendations covering everything from student loans to retirement planning, and dream vacations to budgeting, many from our own personal experiences. After all, we’re still simply people helping people, as we have been for more than 50 years. Now we just have more ways to reach out and help.
Feel free to join in the conversation by commenting or sharing articles that really hit home with you. And if you have an idea for a topic you’d like us to cover, just let us know. We’re always up for a challenge.
Again, welcome and please enjoy the blog. We hope it will soon become one your favorites!
