At our Annual Membership Meeting this past April, Pat and I were proud to share a few videos of how Travis employees helped our members gain more control of their personal finances. In one of these videos, Katt Labbao shared how she saved a member a lot of stress and money by showing him how a new loan could put him in a better financial situation. She is just one example of how the entire Travis management and staff are focused on empowering our members through financial education.

And it’s not just our membership who benefits from such efforts; our communities do as well. Last month, the credit union launched a six-month initiative that encourages people at every age and income level to save $400. Our Crave 2 Save initiative has partnered with eight local nonprofit agencies to encourage people to save for emergencies and to become better money managers by attending one of our free financial workshops. We are very excited about this new program and are eager to see its impact at the end of the year.

Scholarship winners

Another way we support our members is through our annual scholarship program. In this issue of Smart Money Matters we are proud to announce the 2017 recipients of our $1,500 Mary Keith Duff Memorial Scholarships. We’re honored to acknowledge the 21 members selected for this program this year and look forward to being part of their financial journey as they transition from high school seniors to college freshmen this fall.

Transforming our branches for you

This past April, we began renovations of our Vaca Commons and Atwater branches and expect the work to be completed this summer. These transformed branches will have new technology and an open-branch concept that will make face-to-face conversations even easier so that we can focus on providing you the right financial solution.

Of course, when these branches re-open, you’ll be greeted by the same personnel that you’ve come to know there. The new look of these renovated branches will be similar to what you may have seen at our Nut Tree Financial Solutions Center in Vacaville.

Annual Membership meeting

Pat and I were very pleased to see the strong turnout at our Annual Membership Meetings in Vacaville in April and in Atwater in May. Your attendance at these meetings allow us to hear directly from those who put their trust in Travis Credit Union and their faith that we will continue to focus on helping people. We hope to see you next year!

Have a great summer!
