A Message from the President and CEO

We are in the middle of significant changes to the way we do business. Why? Regulation requires it and members demand it. Evolution is going on all around us. The way we shop, the way we drive, the way we live has changed. Your credit union is changing too. Our goal is to balance old fashioned superior member service and implementation of technology that is safe and secure.

Some updates:

  • NEW In-School Tiger Branch opened at Onondaga Central Jr./Sr. high school in September. In conjunction with the teachers and administrators, high school students were trained and run their own in-school branch. We provide the support and they receive the credit.   Two more high school branches are coming in 2019.
  • Financial Literacy and Education. It’s what we do. We support our schools by providing financial literacy in the classroom. We provide our community with education through our involvement with numerous community-based organizations. Want to share SECNY benefits with your group? We’ll come to you!
  • Our continuously developing SEED Program is our way of helping our member school districts provide opportunities for students and teachers that may not otherwise be possible.

You have never needed your credit union more than now. We offer stability, responsible financial management, accountability, value and a sense of family we all deserve.
