Spring President’s Message

By: |

Dear Valued Member:

Happy Spring!

Now that winter is finally behind us, we couldn’t wait to get going with our spring projects.  Like your typical household, your credit union team takes advantage of this season to look at our products and services and make the necessary tweaks to make sure they are still relevant and meeting your financial needs.

Part of our success is knowing our members, and since we’ve been around for over 80 years,  we have built a very solid relationship.  I have personally witnessed these solid relationships form and grow.  Seeing our members utilize us, from way back when I started 25 years ago, and now seeing their children and/or grandchildren utilize our products and services the way generations before them did, is very satisfying and fulfilling – it fuels us.  It gives us a sense of purpose that we are carrying forth our Mission, Vision and Core Values set by our founders 82 years ago.

Through the constant evolution of financial services, we’ve managed to remain relevant and continue to effectively provide products that serve and meet our members’ financial needs in the 21st century.  One thing that remains consistent is our passion to serve you.

Speaking of evolution, an opportunity has come  to us to provide you with a better facility at our Hackensack location.  As our lease at our existing Main St. location is coming to an end in a little over a year, we are looking to move to a location within Hackensack that offers you the high-level member experience you’ve come to expect from us, paired with a newer, state of the art and environmentally conscious facility.

We were founded in 1937 in Hackensack and would like to remain there for the next 80 years and beyond.  The officials of the City of Hackensack have been tremendously helpful and we are grateful for their continued support.  We have setup a page on our site www.greateralliance.org/betterbranch as a single source for the latest information regarding this project. We will also utilize our various social media channels to keep you well informed.  We will be having our Annual Meeting on Wednesday, May 29th, and if we can answer any additional questions regarding this move, we will be more than happy to discuss them at this year’s meeting. Please do not forget to RSVP and  stay tuned for more information through the year

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Senior Management and the entire credit union team, I wish you a happy and productive spring season.

Sincerely,
Glenn Guinto
