Refreshed Website Offers New Design, Optimal Viewing

Our website has been refreshed and now features an intuitive new layout, fresh colors and graphics, and current branding. Additionally, the pages are easier to read, faster to load and the responsive design allows for optimal viewing on both large and small screens, including tablets and mobile phones.

Chip Card Conversion Update 

Our chip Credit Card reissue is now complete. The chip card conversion continues with chip Debit Cards being mailed to existing Debit Cardholders through early October. When used at chip-enabled terminals, smart chip technology creates a unique, one-time code for each transaction, so it is virtually impossible to replicate in a counterfeit card. Chip cards offers enhanced fraud protection, are accepted worldwide and are easy to use. Read our blog to learn more about chip cards and the security they offer.

Our High School Apprentice Program continues to be successful in helping young people take on responsibility and transition to the workforce. Since the Apprentice Program was launched in 2006, it has grown steadily, reaching a record 21 new participants this year.

The program provides valuable job training, competitive pay and future career opportunities for those students. Many of the students who participate in the program continue working for the Credit Union after they graduate from high school. 

Apprentices are identified through select metro Atlanta schools' Work-Based Learning Programs and must complete the same training as adult Credit Union employees.
