Partnership with Members Advantage Community Credit Union
We are pleased to announce that the merger between River Valley Credit Union and Members Advantage Community Credit Union has been approved by both memberships, the State of Vermont, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA.). In early July we announced this partnership opportunity with Members Advantage Community Credit Union. As two like-minded, small Vermont credit unions, we felt it was the perfect fit. Both organizations share a passion for serving our members, and through this partnership, we will be a stronger, more competitive credit union providing our membership with added convenience, enhanced products and services, lower fees, and an expanded field of membership. This merger represents an exciting time for our newly formed credit union and our membership as we take advantage of all of the opportunities this will provide us- and share them with you!
What does this mean for me?
- You can look forward to the same great local, personal member service that you have always received from both organizations. Member service remains at the forefront of our priorities.
- This partnership will continue to enhance our financial strength and ensure the long-term sustainability of our organization in the competitive landscape.
- We have already reduced a variety of fees for both memberships.
- There will be no immediate changes to your accounts, checks, or debit/credit cards. If there are changes in any of these areas it will be communicated well in advance.
What’s on the horizon?
A New Name
As this is a partnership of equals, we have decided to change our names and logos to one that will best represent our combined heritage and values and position us for future growth in the markets that we serve. You will be hearing more about this in the upcoming months.
As we work through the integration of our two organizations, you will be introduced to new products and services along the way- enabling you to enhance your relationship and financial well-being. We will be working to update our delivery channels and expand digital services over time.
Branch Locations & Staff
All existing staff members have remained employed by the combined credit union. In the future, as we coordinate our processes and systems, you will be able to conduct your financial business at any of our branch locations throughout the state of Vermont.
