Fellow members,

We are constantly looking at our operation and making adjustments in an attempt to reduce operating costs without affecting service to our members. As we go through this process, we always want to make sure we listen to our members. We continue to build remote access systems to allow you to use your account wherever you go. 

We are in the process of getting ready to release a mobile banking application which will work with the Iphone or the Android phone. We are very excited about this because it is something our members have been asking for. It should be available by the end of April, so watch for more announcements on this service enhancement.

We continue to grow our transactions through the shared service center network. Today you have over 5,000 offices across the United States you can go to and do business with your credit union. This network is what sets us apart from other financial institutions. We truly can cooperate as credit unions to serve our members.

We are currently doing very few transactions via our Westown drive-up on Saturdays, and we are trying to determine if it is necessary to keep that drive-up open on Saturdays or whether we can provide full service at our Eastown office with access to all of the various shared service centers and remote access points.  We want to hear from you! We need to know when, how and where you need to have us available. Just drop us a note or send an email to me at kent.strawn@gofirstclass.org. It is very important for us to hear from you.


Member of First Class Credit Union,

Call for Potential Director Nominees

We are looking for volunteers to take an active role on our board of directors.  We are a not for profit financial institution organized and directed by our members/owners.  We have operated for almost 90 years using the direction and support we receive from our board of directors.  Our volunteers are very special and are one of the most important pieces to build a successful credit union. 

If you are interested or know of someone who is please contact us and we will be happy to sit down and further explain just what is entailed in serving as a director of First Class Credit Union.  Our Board is made of up of 11 very dedicated volunteers, we meet as a board on a monthly basis and there are other assigned committee meetings that are held throughout the year.

Why Choose A Credit Union:

Credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions. We offer many of the same products and services as banks—including savings and checking accounts, loans, ATMs and online banking—but there are also big differences that can save you money. Credit unions are owned and controlled by their members, not profit-driven shareholders. That means the average credit union can offer better rates and lower fees.
