The year 2016 was one of the most productive years on record for your Credit Union. New members, shares, and loans were all up this past year and we owe this success to you our members.
I want to thank all our members for the confidence and trust that you have in your Credit Union. As a Financial Cooperative we exist for the benefit of our members. Your patronage of the Credit Union is what makes us the success we are.
As we look to 2017 we are preparing to utilize the technology that the new Core Conversion will help us with in bringing better service and products to you. We are going to concentrate even more on growing our membership base. Members are the life blood of the Credit Union and the more we get to participate the stronger we get as a Credit Union. So, help us out and refer a friend, family member or coworker to your credit union. By doing so you are helping to make sure that your Credit Union continues to be strong.
On behalf of your Board of Directors, Committee members and the entire staff at your Credit Union I want to once again thank you. Thank you for using your Credit Union for the services and products we offer. Have a great year in 2017.

Stop the Merchant Data Breaches
It seems as if almost daily there are new merchants coming forward with confirmed data breaches. In early September, a major retailer was hacked by a new form of malware that infected the company's payment card systems and another encountered a breach that ran from August to October involving the theft of customer data at various store locations. These locations were infected with Backoff malware that has targeted other retailers across the country.
Merchant data breaches continue to be a chronic issue that cost Credit Unions millions of dollars each year yet merchants are not currently held accountable for these breaches. You can help by sending a simple and clear message to Pennsylvania's Congressional delegation: "Stop the Merchant Data Breaches." Contact your Member of Congress by visiting Stop the Data Breaches and click on the "Take Action" link.
