We Want to be a Part of Your Entire Life

We have a lot of discussions at the Credit Union about the “3 Ls” as it relates to serving our members: Life stage; Lifestyle; and Lifetime. The 3 Ls help us stay focused in our development of products, services and delivery systems.

There is no particular order or priority to the Ls as long as we have our focus on all three. To miss one is a really big deal given that the time span associated to each is longer than just a few days. A lot happens in a life stage. A considerable amount of time may be spent in a particular type of lifestyle, and lifetime sort of speaks for itself. All in all, these 3 Ls take into account your entire life. And that’s where we want to be – a part of your entire life.

From a life stage perspective, you need certain products that meet your needs at certain times. Young people, for instance, need that “very” used car. Paper vs. plastic is a choice young people make, too. Write a check? No way! They need plastic…and a debit card is better than a credit card as far as they are concerned. Home loans, electronic bill pay and the Internet also are at the top of the list. If you’re a little older, your interests and needs change. Investments, home equity and “toys” are much more in line with your current life stage.

Lifestyle is a big issue, too. The credit union offers products and services that speak to member lifestyles. If you’re a couch potato, you can do all your financial services from home. Direct deposit saves time, money and gas. Need a motorcycle? We’ve got a loan for that, too. Whatever your lifestyle – old-fashioned or 21st century cutting edge – we are able to match our products with your lifestyle needs.

And finally, lifetime is what we want at the Credit Union. We want you to be a member throughout every life stage and every lifestyle. From your first financial needs to the days when investments and certificates of deposit matter most – we want to be there for you.

We hope you want us through the “stages”, the “styles,” and for a long, long “time.” It’s our job to do what it takes to make sure we meet your needs. If not, please let us know. We’re very interested.
