A Message From Our Chairman
Thanks to our members choosing NuMark for their financial needs, we were able to open a new branch in New Lenox. We want to make sure that our members have easy access to their money. That is why we focus on being in the best locations, offering the latest mobile technologies and are a part of the shared branching network. Our members can walk into 5,200 branch locations nationwide.
Supporting our communities is the foundation of the credit union movement. We participate in community and chamber events, expos, parades, golf outings and sponsor many local events each year. We are proud to have received 2nd Place in the State Dora Maxwell Award for Community Involvement for our support of Local Pet Charities.
We also collected $3,000 and sponsored 300 wreaths for the “Wreaths across America” project, a national program that honors veterans and their families. NuMark is proud to sponsor wreaths at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. In 2016 we began our support of the Northern Illinois Food Bank, which is working to build a new facility in Will County to better serve our communities.
The Board of Directors also provided a special Community Giveback by giving NuMark employees $50 to spend at a local business. We are locally owned and operated just as they are, and we wanted to show our support.
Financial Literacy is key to giving back. We provide Bank at School and free financial literacy programs to local schools. For adults, we share our expertise on the Money Talk Radio Show on WJOL 1340AM and provide free financial seminars. Our efforts have been recognized. I am pleased to announce that NuMark earned 1st Place in the State Competition for the Desjardins Adult Financial Literacy for our “Women in Money” Free Seminar Series and we received 1st Place in the State Competition for the Desjardins Youth Financial Literacy Competition for our work with the Rockdale Entrepreneur Club.
Without a doubt, our people are our greatest asset at NuMark Credit Union. Their talent and dedication to serving our members and our communities is the backbone of our success. As we grow together, we have much to look forward to in 2017.
Chairman of the Board
