July 2019 President’s Message
Summer is in full swing and hopefully everyone is beating the heat! Early in July, we held our 11th Annual Family Fun Extravaganza, and hosted over 500 people at our Bumble Bee Hollow headquarters. The event was a great way for families to enjoy time together, completely free! We also helped promote local businesses at the event by allowing many businesses to have tables to advertise for free and we raised money and donations for Family Promise.
Our next shred day is coming up on Saturday, August 17th at our Highland Park office. Join us from 10am to noon to shred your secure documents safely and enjoy refreshments. This event is open to both members and non members, so feel free to invite friends and family. Our staff will also be out and about in the community at the East Pennsboro National Night Out and Harrisburg Senators games. It is a part of our commitment to give back to the community, and I am pleased to share that some of our employees have been recognized locally for these commitments. Brit Parker, our Business Development Specialist, has been recognized by the West Shore Chamber of Commerce as a nominee for the Shining Star Luminary Award, and Brittney Monteith, our AVP Marketing, has been named a 2019 Central Penn Business Journal Forty under 40 Honoree.
In September, we will reveal our brand new website! We had received a lot of feedback from members and we are happy to provide features like a more prominent online banking login, easier to find information on the site, and a new and easier to navigate loan application page. Our online banking will not be changing, but will be adding a couple of new customization features to allow members to make their online banking more personal. Keep watch on our website for previews and FAQs over the next month to become better acquainted with the new site.
As summer wraps up and we all try to finish those last minute home projects, I am happy to share that we are offering no application fee or closing cost fixed rate home equity loans of $10,000 to $149,999. We also have great home equity lines of credit available if you have a longer term project, are unsure of your total costs, or simply would like an emergency fund as we enter the cooler months. Contact one of our Financial Service Representatives for more details on how we can help.
Thank you all for your commitment to AmeriChoice and choosing us as your trusted financial partner!
