In just a few short days we will hit the largest milestone in our merger to date – the integration of our computer systems. For our members, this means we are truly operating as a one credit union, with a single branch network, call centre, website and Internet Banking system.
Of course, there is one piece still required to complete the picture – our new name. The Board is currently finalising a name to be put forward to members for a vote, and we’ll provide more information on this process in the very near future.
Until this happens, we’ve implemented an interim brand consisting of both heritage logos which is a temporary solution to signify that we are operating as one credit union.
There will be some interruptions to our services (link to service interruptions page) as we complete the integration of our computer systems on the weekend of 12-13 March 2011. It’s important you take note of these interruptions and arrange any transactions around these outages.
I’m pleased to say that you’ll find a fresh-look blog on our new website, which will provide you with the opportunity to talk to me and some of our knowledgeable staff members about almost any subject related to our credit union.
I would like to thank you all for your support and patience to date in what has been a very satisfying journey as we strive to create a member-owned alternative to the major banks.
