As a financial cooperative, we operate and live by a set of values that transcends the typical banking model that places sales and profits ahead of people.
It’s that time of year…a time to reflect on the past year and celebrate the Credit Union’s continued success! It’s such a wonderful feeling to know that the credit union has thrived as a direct result of our members’ prosperity. As a financial cooperative, we operate and live by a set of values that transcends the typical banking model that places sales and profits ahead of people.
Over my 37-year career with Sun Federal, and particularly the past 28 years as your President, I’ve seen how impactful we can be in the daily lives of our members. Our focus has always been centered on doing life with our members and building, through their life stories, a secure relationship that grows deeper over a lifetime.
You may be wondering what the value of credit union membership is…it's being a part of a bigger family -with a common bond of mutual ownership! You're part of a not-for-profit financial cooperative! It’s about your life journey and how we can partner with you during every step to provide the tools you need to succeed financially. As an owner you play a vital role in your credit union’s success. By using our services – borrowing, investing, checking or whatever financial product/service you may need – you are helping all of the members, and yourself, prosper.
Mission, Purpose and Values remain at the core of every decision that we make – members are honored for their trust and contributions to the cooperative. Thanks to their loyal participation, Sun Federal has grown from serving them out of a single location to a 10-branch network, including shared credit union branches across the country. Not to mention in today’s technology-driven environment, enhanced integration through mobile access channels - ultimately making the Sun Federal service experience both “high tech” AND “high touch.”
Looking back, your participation and contributions in 2015 brought continued success and prosperity for all 31,990 Sun Federal members…
*Compared to like credit unions nationwide.
Our committed board members and staff work diligently to ensure that membership at Sun Federal always feels like family. Our people-centric culture drives us to be the best in everything we do. At Sun Federal, we are committed to providing an extraordinary experience for every member and are driven by a set of core values that are the foundation of how we embrace every day.
Over my long career with Sun Federal it has truly been wonderful to see our credit union grow and serve diverse generations of families. From my perspective, It’s never been about simply “doing business,” it has always been about doing life with our members. Taking that journey with each member and truly helping them embrace the challenges and opportunities of each season of life.
Together we are better and stronger and living our values in how we serve each other, which truly creates the bond of relationship that lasts for a lifetime.
