It figures that all associated with First Choice America Credit Union—employees, members, vendors and friends—will display bright smiles on Friday, May 16, 2014 as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of our business.
And that would be perfectly appropriate considering the remarkable growth in membership, assets and charitable work that today identify First Choice America as a major business in the Upper Ohio Valley.
Many of our 40,000 members will think of yesteryear when our credit union got its humble start in 1939 in the gritty, congested environment of North Weirton. Likely someone in their family cashed a check in the small upstairs room of the Colonial grocery store, first office of our credit union.
Our primary mission back then was to help our members, to give them access to affordable credit so that their families would survive and grow. Then and now, our primary objective remains that of delivering value to our members via better rates and lower fees, maximum convenience and world class service.
That mission is unchanged. First Choice America is committed to offering the most affordable array of financial products and services to the consumers of the Ohio Valley. You can count on us both today and in the future.
Our 75th anniversary in business finds First Choice America still working hard to provide 40,000 members with the most cost effective alternative for all of their financial needs. That is one facet of the business that will never change!
It is certainly worthwhile to look back at 75 years of helping people. It also is certainly exciting to look forward to Friday, May 16th, 2014 when I will have the opportunity to greet and thank our members for their business and their friendship, and share some memories of our exceptional past!
