The Mission of WCCU Credit Union
We – the management, staff, and volunteers – will deliver personalized financial services that are efficient, confidential and accurate. These services will be offered in a convenient, friendly and comfortable environment. Our products and services will be competitively priced and economically sound. Loan rates will be fair and reasonable and savings will be secure. We will continue to supply members with beneficial product and service information.
In addition, our credit union will grow by increasing membership through marketing and public relations. As we continue to grow and provide on-going education, we will expand our areas of expertise into specialized services. Also, we will continue to actively support the communities in which we serve.
Since 1939, WCCU has been serving the financial needs of its members. I am honored to lead the management and staff who are charged with providing the products and services of today’s WCCU members. As a financial cooperative, I recognize that our strength revolves around the relationship with our members. Our goal is to continue to build that special relationship we have with each of our members.
While each of our members shares that common bond, I also know that meeting the needs of a member in Vernon County is not the same thing as meeting the needs of a member in Sauk County. Some of our members want to use debit cards and some want to write checks. Still others like the advantage of online financial services, while many still like to see a friendly face in the lobby of one of our branches. Our goal is to provide that individualized service to each and every one of our members. I believe that is what makes our credit union different… calling members by name, providing the services they need in a safe and secure environment, and providing affordable financial services.
I have had the privilege of working with members in each of our branches: Baraboo, Cashton, Coon Valley, Lake Delton, Prairie du Sac, Reedsburg, Richland Center, Viroqua, and Westby. I enjoy meeting new faces within the credit union and around the local communities, and I look forward to meeting many more.
Thank you for your confidence in WCCU and, as always, I appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns and I will be happy to discuss them with you.
Board of Directors
Seven members elected by the membership to the Board of Directors are tasked with ensuring the Executive Management Team uphold’s the Credit Union’s member-focused mission statement. This rarely requires direct involvement in the day-to-day operations, since that job falls to the Credit Union President and staff. Generally speaking, the Board’s job is to set course for the credit union, making sure it is operated in a sound and prudent manner and that all decisions are guided by the best interests of the members. WCCU’s voluntary Board of Directors will:
- Develop WCCU’s long-term goals and strategic plan
- Make sure the credit union maintains its sound financial condition
- Keep communication open to educate members on services
- Report to the members at the annual meeting
- Approve interest rates, dividends, and refunds, or approve policies to guide management in doing so
- Develop personnel policies, or make sure they are developed, and then approve them for all credit union programs and activities
- Make sure new products and services are developed as needed
