GCU Newsletters
Newsletter Summer 2016

Message from the President. GCU Receives “Best Places to Work” Award. We’re especially proud of this award because it is based on our employees who voted for us! We also won in 2014! And, at the Awards dinner, held at the Crowne Plaza on June 16 GCU took home the “Spirit Award.” Interest rates, Interest rates, Interest rates, that still remains a big question mark. It appears that
the Federal Open Market Committee may delay another interest rate hike for the rest of the year.

Fall 2015 Message from the President. Just a quick update… Your credit union had a great summer. Loan volume has been outstanding and interest rates are still low. If you haven’t taken advantage of the low rates, it’s not too late to apply for that mortgage, home equity or car loan. The Federal Open Market Committee (FMOC) continues to delay any increase in interest rates, but it certainly seems that an uptick is near.
