Around this time of year, our Executive Team and Board of Directors get together to discuss how we’re doing and to set our strategic priorities for the coming year. We understand that the world has changed, and we are evolving and adapting as well. Despite the year’s challenges, your local credit union is thriving. We surpassed $400 million in assets this summer, and our membership has grown to over 21,000.
The pandemic sped up the adoption of several new technologies, and we have all become more accustomed to online shopping, video conferencing, and working or learning remotely. We now offer online scheduling of appointments so you can meet at a time and location that is most convenient to you. This includes the ability to meet with us via video conference from the comfort of your home.
Rates continue to be at historic lows. We were able to help many of our members save money with our balance transfer Visa® promotion, and our Auto Loan rates are still some of the lowest around. If your car loan is with another lender, look at how much you could save by bringing that loan to us. We are also offering a very competitive rate on our Energy Saver Loan. If this summer’s energy bills had you dreaming of solar, now is the time! It’s a more environmentally friendly option, and I can tell you from experience, seeing that change to my monthly bill feels pretty good.
We are committed to the prosperity of our community. We recently made a sizeable donation to a very worthy organization—the Davis Phoenix Coalition. This organization works to engage and unite the Davis community in eliminating intolerance, preventing hate, and promoting a broader civic culture that embraces all aspects of our diverse community. We are honored to help support their mission of promoting a world where all people are safe, respected, and free from violence.
We understand that many financial institutions have offices in Yolo County, but we know that being genuinely local makes us uniquely different. We work here; we live here; we spend our money here. Our members are not just customers—you are friends, family, and community partners. You are the reason we do what we do. We thank you for your continued support.
