35,000 Member Milestone!
Mid Oregon Credit Union, the only financial institution headquartered in Central Oregon, recently crossed the 35,000-member mark. As we move into the new year, Mid Oregon celebrates milestone of membership growth.
We have experienced record membership growth during the past several years as part of an emphasis on increasing access to a wide variety of affordable, high quality financial services to individuals, families and businesses in Central Oregon. Including those accounts which represent more than one person, such as minor accounts and those with two spouses as joint owners, more than 50,000 Central Oregonians would have accounts with Mid Oregon.
More Than Just An Expanding Population Base
“We understand that our growth is due partly to the expanding population in this region, but we’re also doing more than ever to meet the needs of existing residents who prefer a local option to manage their financial business,” says CEO Bill Anderson. “Since we’re focused on serving Central Oregon, our members know they can count on us, and our efforts to give back by investing in the local communities.”
Mid Oregon reached its 25,000-member mark in 2015, and welcomed its 30,000th member in May of 2018. The rate of member growth has far outpaced the national averages for high-performing credit unions of similar size. “Consumers want a combination of easy, global access and personal hometown service when it comes to their financial lives,” says VP Marketing Kyle Frick. “We continue to exceed that expectation through continual improvements in online digital services, data security enhancements, and convenient branch locations.”
Services Fitting the Needs of Central Oregonians
In addition to serving members with our core services of auto and credit card loans, checking accounts, and deposit options, Mid Oregon has recently expanded our capabilities to provide real estate lending (including investment properties), as well as commercial loans and accounts for businesses.
