Thank you for helping CorePlus have a very successful year in 2018. We added 3,000 new Members through a merger with Connecticut Community Credit Union. We also had a record year for new loans. We booked over $100 million in loans and advances. Auto lending was extremely robust with over $40 million in new loans.
As always, we commit to offer best in class service whether it be in person at one of our branches, online, over the phone, or through text messaging. In 2018, we increased a number of touchpoints to our delivery channel that will make it easier for you to access your credit union. You can now communicate with the credit union through text messaging and open new accounts online. We made applying, approving, and electronically signing for many of our loan products much easier. You can do all of that online and not have to come to a branch!
In 2019, we are committed to finding additional products and services that will make managing your financial affairs easier. We cherish our relationship with you and pledge to continue to offer extremely competitive rates on our deposits and loans.
Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Nicholas K. Fortson
