  Just over a year ago the official start of tough times for the credit union movement started with the collapse of the corporate credit
  union system. This followed the collapse of several good sized banks that had wandered into the magical land of mortgage backed
  securities. Well here we are in the Spring of 2010 and nothing much has changed in the last twelve months. Oh yeah, the banking
  industry received a nice bailout. They were supposed to change their evil banking ways and become more like... credit unions. You
  see how that’s coming along. We credit unions took it on the chin with no bailout whatsoever. Indeed, the natural person credit
  unions (like MICU) are now faced collectively with the bill for fixing the system on behalf of the corporates to the tune of at least
  .15% of insured shares (deposits) for maybe the next ten years. For a credit union of our size that’s about $80-100K per year. We’re
  a medium size credit union. For a really big credit union like the ones you hear advertising on the radio that could amount to over
  $1 million per year.

  Despite all the glum news, your credit union remains financially strong and your deposits are safe and insured by both the NCUSIF
  (a federal agency) as well as by supplemental private insurance through American Share Insurance. We continue to offer the best
  lending rates and competitive savings rates. Starting in April, we will be rolling out an incredible new auto loan rate as low as 3.99%
  for up to 60 months. And remember, we will meet or beat any other rate offered to you by another financial institution.

  Back to the bank versus credit union thing. The public’s trust and faith in the banking industry is at its historic lowest level since
  the depression. At the same time, MICU and other credit unions are reaping the benefits of member trust and loyalty. That trust
  and loyalty is due in part to credit union responsibility and accessibility. The relationships between you and us help our entire
  membership to save and borrow money for any number of purposes from auto purchases, to home ownership, to credit cards, to
  instruments and equipment. We’ve added rewards programs to make using your checking account and debit card as well as your
  VISA credit card truly a “rewarding” experience.

  The MICU family values your loyalty. Let’s hope this Spring brings growth to more than just flowers.
