We’ll meet you where you are
Our teams have been busy hosting independence summits, attending conferences, and meeting you where you are to make sure we get this right. Getting to travel across North Carolina is just a bonus.
Check out some of the highlights.
Credit unions are cooperatives. This means that members’ voices should be part of the changes we’re making. We want to hear what’s needed in your region, town and community to ensure your Credit Union is accessible and built for you.
Where we've been (so far)
We’re addressing concerns and taking inspiration from all your innovative ideas for your Credit Union. We look forward to continuing these conversations and answering challenging questions.
