Local Connect - Smithfield


We were recently in Smithfield meeting with members and community leaders to continue the conversation about our June 2025 transition to serving our members independent of the SECU branch network. We were glad to host a diverse group of invested credit union and community members. The firefighting community shared the features they need in an app; HR managers spoke on behalf of the employees they serve; and members received answers to the tough questions and shared their success stories as current Civic members! We will host more events across the state, spending a few more days meeting in the east and then heading to the piedmont before ending up in the mountains.

It takes a village

It takes a village! That was a recurring sentiment at our first-quarter Partnership Meeting, hosted this week at the Civic Conference Center in downtown Raleigh. Read on for highlights! 

First official branch location - Asheville

We’ve secured our first official branch location, (aside from our headquarters in Raleigh), in Asheville at 275 Smokey Park Highway. With plans for more branches, these interactive centers prioritize guiding members in technology use for business, fostering digital comfort, and enabling cash deposits. We are close to announcing the next ones, so stay tuned!

AC Connects

On the road again! During November and December, our team hit 11 locations throughout North Carolina to meet with our Advisory Council members. Hundreds came to have great conversation, ask and answer tough questions and share ideas — all related to progress toward June 2025 independence.

Keep me posted!
