As our Annual Meeting approaches, it’s always nice to reflect back on the past year and pause to see what we accomplished as we plan for the future.
And what an amazing 2017 it was!
We celebrated our 80th anniversary with a yearlong campaign centered around our members. From young families starting out to buy their first home to small-business owners focused on growing their company to retirees who ensure the next generation is saving for the future, these are the members whose financial dreams we’ve helped make a reality.
And what a great feeling to see them succeed. As we shared their stories, we welcomed more members and watched our extended family grow. We closed out the year 100,000 members strong, and counting!
Our dramatic growth is truly a testament to the strength of the credit union cooperative model and the value we provide to our member owners. Our members see how our profits directly benefit them in the form of better rates and lower fees, as well as many free member events and financial tools.
We had a sell-out crowd of 1,000 members and their families at our 80th anniversary event at Paradise Cove Luau and our popular Family Event Series drew record attendance at our Member Movie Days.
Seminars on topics such as protecting yourself from identity theft, budgeting basics and retirement planning helped educate our members, and the larger community, on the importance of planning for your financial future.
At Hawaii State FCU, we are committed to helping Hawaii families make smarter financial decisions by offering many free educational resources. Our newly redeveloped website is evidence of that and is chockful of free calculators, interactive tutorials, blog content and more to equip members with the knowledge they need to better manage their money.
Always Right By You is at the heart of all we do – because for us, we want to be there for you every step of the way, just like family.
