Making the Most of Your Membership: A Message from the President & CEO

Feb 05, 2019

Brett MartinezI often say credit unions are the best-kept secret out there. I believe if everyone recognized the benefits of banking with a credit union, everyone would do it. As an RCU Member, you’re ahead of the pack; you’re already enjoying the benefits of better rates, fewer fees, and exceptional personal service. But are you really getting the most from your membership?

At RCU, we care about your success, and want you to live a healthy financial life. That’s what drives everything we do, and it’s the reason why we offer so much more than basic banking. In addition to personal and business banking and lending, we have a full-service insurance agency, an auto dealership, and wealth management advisors available through CFS* who can help you with investments, financial planning, and more. So you can take care of all your financial needs in one place.

Every service we provide is designed to help save you time and money. If you have loans, credit cards, insurance, or other financial services with another institution, I encourage you to compare your current benefits to what RCU has to offer. I think you’ll be surprised at what we can do for you. And if you need help learning how to budget, reduce debt, or improve your credit score, we have solutions for that, too. Plus, we’re local, so you have someone to call when you need assistance, but we also offer convenience and technology that makes it easy for you do your banking wherever you go.

The simple fact is, credit unions are designed for the benefit of Members, and the more you participate, the more you receive in return. Profits are reinvested into the credit union to provide better rates, fewer and lower fees, and additional services to meet your needs. So make the most of your membership in 2019—let us know how we can help.

Happy new year!
