Be thankfulA credit union wouldn’t be successful without its members. Always keep this at the front of your mind. Whenever a new account is opened or a loan is approved, send a thank-you note or small gift to make that person feel appreciated. Acts like this will produce loyal members.ListenNo one knows what your members need better than your members. Listen to their needs, their wants, and their dreams, so you can provide them with the products and services they need to live a happy and successful life.Surprise themEveryone loves surprises. It feels good to be acknowledged, even more so when you’re not expecting it. Pick at random or reward a member for a milestone they’re not aware of, either way it’ll surely be a surprise they’ll be excited about.Always come throughThings don’t always go as planned. People aren’t perfect so things will go awry from time to time. The best way to handle these situations is to make sure you always make things right in the end. Members don’t expect perfection, but they’ll be happy to know you’ve always got their back. 89SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

TOWN OF VESTAL (WBNG) — The Broome County District Attorney’s Office stated Monday that a Vestal man pleaded guilty to burning the Home Central store. According to a news release, Richard Millard “did intentionally damage” the store, located at 199 Stage Road in the Town of Vestal. Millard pleaded guilty to second-degree arson. In July, Home Central began to rebuild and increase the size of both the warehouse and retail section of the store. The fire caused extensive damage to the warehouse, but the retail part of the store was mostly undamaged. On March 20, the Vestal Police Department arrested Millard for causing a fire to the warehouse. Police stated that Millard was an employee of Home Central at the time of the fire. A judge announced a sentencing date of November 10, 2020.
