A Message from the President and CEO

In your school, at your business, with your community, for your family: We’re in your life.

SECNY offers stability, responsible financial management, accountability, value and a sense of family we all deserve.

Change, evolution, enhancement-some fear these, others embrace them.

Your credit union is changing, evolving and enhancing for the better.

Our goal as always is to balance old fashioned superior member service and implementation of technology that is safe, secure and convenient.

SECNY is federally insured and one of the safest financial institutions in the country. Our lending quality is a leader in the industry. But what are the things we hear you love most? That you are treated like family, warmly welcomed in our branches and the sense of comfort when speaking to one of our employees on the phone.

It takes much more to bring you the credit union you enjoy today. It takes talented and creative people to bring our business to life every day. People who strive to do great things and deliver amazing results. What makes us better… is the personal touch. The common thread we all share here? …The values.

Your home is our home. We are Central New York. Thank you for your continued membership and support!
