John Sweeney, Chairman

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Supervisory Committee, and staff, it is my pleasure to present this annual report to the members of SF Fire Credit Union.

Reflecting upon the past year, it’s one I would describe as successful at the credit union. We continued carrying forward the traditions of our founding members, who began meeting the financial services needs of San Francisco firefighters out of a small office at 17 Engine in 1951. We strived to provide a level of personal service which embodies the values that Art McIntyre, Larry Murray, Larry Kelly, Jake Palu, Ed Mitchell, Bill Mooney, Frank Brissette, John Tully, George Kelley, and others instilled in SF Fire Credit Union over sixty years ago. Our staff and management were successful in upholding these values, and I appreciate their steadfast commitment to improving the financial lives of our members.

We also recognize and appreciate our good fortune in having a membership which is supportive and engaged. Many consider us their primary financial institution, and encourage their family and friends to do the same. This loyalty and confidence you have in SF Fire Credit Union has always been the key to its success, and what assures us a long and prosperous future. As a member-owned financial cooperative we exist to provide you with the best possible value, and in a manner which maintains the safety and soundness of your credit union. It’s a responsibility taken very seriously, and one we consider an honor to have bestowed upon us.

In closing, I thank you for being a member of SF Fire Credit Union and appreciate your continued faith in us as an organization.

Best Regards,

John Sweeney
