Following NAR’s Midyear Legislative Meeting, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to commemorate the official opening of REALTORS® Federal Credit Union and to celebrate a new beginning in financial services for National Association of REALTORS® members. Credit union President and CEO, Tom Glatt took to the stage with 2009 NAR President Charles McMillan, Credit Union Board Chairman, Mike Brodie and Credit Union Board Director, Dale Stinton, to participate in the ribbon cutting.
In attendance were credit union executives including REALTORS® FCU Chief Information Officer, Jesse Boyer who guided the attendees through a live presentation of a new member joining online. The demonstration highlighted how REALTORS® FCU plans to use technology and innovative solutions to provide members with online access to credit union services. “Getting this credit union up and running has been a 24/7 initiative for a long time” said Boyer, “being here with the Board and everyone at Midyear really makes me feel good about being a part of such a unique piece of, not only NAR’s history, but credit union history.”
A federally chartered, full service credit union, REALTORS® FCU plans to roll out more consumer products and also begin adding business products for its members in the near future.
