Thank you, members, for your patronage and support. Our members are the true foundation of Friends & Family Credit Union. We are a cooperative financial institution owned and managed by the people who use its services - you, our members.

A volunteer board is one of the primary differences between a credit union and a bank. This year, we have two seats up for election. Nominated for three-year terms are: Gary Lucas and Melville “Bud” Maier.

The election will not be conducted by ballot, and there will be no nominations from the floor when there is at least one nominee for each position. Friends & Family Credit Union provides for the acceptance of additional nominations from the membership.

If you are interested in running for the board of directors, send a letter of interest with a statement of biographical data, qualifications and willingness to serve the appropriate term. The letter must be received at the credit union no later than March 2, 2020.

Did you know you could lose money in an inactive account? By law, Friends & Family Credit Union is required to automatically release any funds to the State of Ohio from an account with five years of inactivity. To avoid this happening to you, keep your account active with just one transaction per year. Perhaps pick a date to annually make the deposit, such as an anniversary, birthday or even at income tax time. Call Friends & Family Cred­it Union, if you have concerns or questions at 330-832-1371.
