A Message from the President and CEO

Smart Implementation of Technology that is Safe and Secure with Value Added Member Benefits is here. So much more to come…

It's got to be immediate and that's not fast enough. Also, it's got to be cyber safe and we want it for free. Statements like these are what we hear almost every day. We continue to invest in and develop new technology. This year and next you will see some significant changes to the way we do business. Why? Regulation requires it and members demand it.

Since our inception over 46 years ago, we've strived to provide exceptional service. We've collaborated, created and offered financial services using technology solutions that have transformed your credit union into a national leader. But we make the difference right here in Central New York. We have established and continue to maintain a successful history of helping our members.
