WOW. 2011 was an eventful year. We saw a multitude of changes here at the credit union. These changes were designed to make your ex-
perience here at Newark Board of Education Employees Credit Union enjoyable and rewarding. We will continue to make the changes you

If you think 2011 was exciting, check out what is planned for 2012. Home Banking is up and running. Bill Pay is here and its free. We are an-
ticipating Shared Branching to be implemented by the end of the first quarter of the new year. Our Home Equity program is unsurpassed by
none. We will also roll out a new mortgage program in the first quarter of 2012. A new credit card should be ready by the second quarter of
2012. Wait, that’s not all.

We do all of these things to make your ownership of the credit union as rewarding as possible. 2012 is the year of service here at NBEECU.
