Thank you to all of our members for making 2017 another successful year! Last year, we focused on our core values of providing members with a unique member experience. Although our goal is to serve our members in the best way with personalized service, we have also evolved and taken advantage of new technologies to better serve current and future members. Our full-service Mobile banking platform provides members the convenience of banking with us from anywhere and at any time. More of our members are taking advantage of this technology to manage their finances while saving time to focus on their personal goals. To further diversify our online offerings, we will introduce online account opening within the next few months so members can easily open accounts in the comfort of their home.
This year Naveo celebrates 90 years of helping members in our community achieve their dreams. From our humble beginnings in 1928 as Cambridge Portuguese Credit Union, when we only served the Portuguese immigrant community that lived in the City of Cambridge, to now Naveo Credit Union, an inclusive financial institution with the same mission of “Saving Together to Lend to Each Other.” This motto is what drives us to remain a relevant financial institution in the communities we serve. Although technology has revolutionized the way we bank, we haven’t forgotten that we are in the business of helping people. In addition, we are proud to say that your money is invested locally to help our local economy.
We kicked off our Anniversary celebration March 2, our anniversary of incorporation, with a member-centric event at our branches featuring fun photo props, giveaways, specials and some delicious food from local restaurants/bakeries. If you didn’t have a chance to join us, Naveo has other celebratory events scheduled throughout the year including a member business wine tasting, shred days and a member barbeque at the end of the summer.
I’m extremely proud to lead an organization with such a remarkable history, an amazing staff and a Board of Directors that are still true to the Credit Union mission that was created 90 years ago by a group of visionaries.
Happy 90th anniversary to all of us and we look forward to continue to serve you in 2019!
