Effective June 5, 2013, all Mid-Illini Credit Union (MICU) locations will close early each week on Wednesday. Our hours of operation on the other days of the week will not be affected, and the Drive Up lanes at our Eastland Drive office will remain open until 6 pm, as usual.
The change is necessary at this time because we are moving from our once-a-month staff meetings to getting the whole MICU crew together for an hour every week. We believe that getting everyone together more often will lead to a stronger team, which, in turn, will lead to delivering better service to you, our members.
During our weekly staff meetings, we'll focus on in-depth product training (so our employees can help you manage your money more efficiently), leadership development (so we'll have tomorrow's leaders on board and ready to go when the next great opportunity comes along) and team-building exercises.
We also believe it's important to help our employees (and our members) realize the impact that credit unions have on our global economy. Spending more time together as a group will allow us to invest in learning about the world wide impact of the credit union industry - both in the emerging economies that couldn't function without our cooperative business model - and in more developed countries where trust in banks and governments has eroded to a point of no return and people are moving back toward a time where "people helping people" is the rule rather than the exception.
We do regret any inconvenience our abbreviated hours may cause for our members, but we sincerely believe that building a stronger financial services team for you to count on in the future is a worthy long-term goal, and we're sure that you'll agree.
Our Drive Up lanes on Eastland Drive will remain open until 6 pm (even on Wednesdays). You can visit one of our 12 convenient, FREE ATMs anytime, you can access your accounts via the MICU Mobile Money app on your smart phone or by banking online at our website anytime, 24/7.
Thanks in advance for working with us as we work to deliver an ever-better credit union experience for you. Please direct any questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
