Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Annual Membership meeting on March 26. It was nice to visit with many of you and see such a great turnout of members who braved the weather learn about the exciting events transpiring at your credit union. If you weren’t able to make the meeting, allow me to share some of the topics covered for 2015 plans.
In March, we welcomed members of Hattiesburg’s Wesley Federal Credit Union to the Keesler Federal family after a merger of Wesley Federal Credit Union with Keesler Federal Credit Union. We retained the existing Wesley FCU branch and staff. With this merger, anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Forrest County became eligible for membership with Keesler Federal. Shortly after the merger, an additional office was opened at 6175 US 98 in the Turtle Creek Plaza in Hattiesburg. These new offices provide members in the Hub City convenient access to their credit union six days a week with full teller and lending services, as well as, business services and mortgage loan services.
Second quarter is shaping up to be just as exciting as the first quarter. You now have more access to surcharge-free ATMS with your Debit Card through the Allpoint ATM network. And, KwikPay powered by PayPal recently launched on Keesler Mobile to allow you to send money to someone quickly. All you need is their email or phone number.
Plans are well underway for the Diamondhead branch to move into a newer, larger facility this summer and we’ll be adding a new branch in the Triangle area at Keesler AFB, as well. In addition to branch additions, later this year other new convenient services , such as Apple Pay.
I encourage you to take time to scan your Quarterly InTouch newsletter to stay updated with current events. Here, you’ll learn about the new EMV chip coming to credit and debit cards, as well as updates on branch openings.
As always, we appreciate your loyalty and we’re proud you’ve chosen Keesler Federal as your financial services provider.
Yours in service,
John R. Goff
President and CEO
Keesler Federal Credit Union
