Take Your Child to Work Day

Employees are encouraged to bring their child to work to develop their understanding of career opportunities, as well as to learn about the Credit Union and its long history in the communities it serves.


We care about the communities we serve and the employees who serve them. The Credit Union encourages its employees to volunteer within the communities they work and live in.
