Autumn is upon us, sending students back to their classrooms, and causing many of us to wonder how it’s possible for the year to be passing so quickly. As we enter into the final months of 2014, you should know that the year thus far has been a good one for SF Fire Credit Union. Members continue to give us the opportunity to meet their financial services needs, which has been a key factor in our sustained profitability and ability to grow capital reserves. We’re grateful for your loyalty and support, and recognize its direct correlation to the strength and prosperity of our credit union.
Looking back at summer, it’s a season that I’d describe as a busy one here at the credit union. Our seminar series was expanded, with new topics including Health Care in Retirement and Auto Buying. As these seminars are intended to help members make better informed decisions regarding their financial lives, I welcome suggestions on other topics you’d like to see us offer. We launched our new website, which was designed to be more informative and intuitive. Recognizing the increasing popularity and usage of mobile and tablet devices, we created a new www.sffirecu.org which is easier-to-read on screens both big and small. Many of you are likely aware of the Home Depot security breach, the latest incident involving debit and credit card data being compromised by a large retailer.
