As we begin 2014, Mid Oregon Credit Union is poised and ready to achieve our business plan goals. We are already implementing change that will help us achieve our objectives and fulfill members’ financial needs. Here are some of the things that we feel are important to share with you as your credit union and trusted financial partner:

Our investment partner, Members Financial Services is changing their name to Mid Oregon Financial Services. Only the name is changing, the top level products, services and staff will remain the same. Please come in and meet our financial advisor, JC Hallman, to see how he can help you with your investment, retirement, or insurance needs.

We will be welcoming our new “Tiffany” in the La Pine office, congratulations to our “current” Tiffany who is moving to our Olney office. We are excited about the growth in La Pine and having our two Tiffanys here to help you with your lending needs.

We will also be adding new staff in other areas of the credit union and shifting responsibilities to better serve your needs.

To keep your finances better organized and accessible, please take advantage of our electronic services; e-statements, online banking, account alerts, ebillpay and mobile deposit. These electronic delivery channels provide you with convenient, secure access to your accounts. We will be working to help you understand and use these excellent services throughout the year.

We are also expanding our financial education efforts again this year, reaching out to members and the community to provide information that will help with your financial success.

We will be expanding our efforts in the areas of mortgage lending including the mortgage accelerator product, as well as business lending.

This year looks to be another year of economic recovery for the region, the credit union and the membership. Thank you for the trust and confidence you have placed in us.
