Feb 09, 2023 A+ News

We’re grateful for our members who continue to help strengthen our credit union.

In 2022, we challenged ourselves to improve our member experience and expand our community impact.

As an organization, we’ve made notable improvements to modernizing our digital service capabilities – from launching a new website to updating our mobile app to releasing a new online credit score module that makes monitoring your credit more accessible.

We worked hard to deliver not only for our members but for our community as well. This year we introduced our very first A+ Gives Day which allowed all staff, both local and non-local, to volunteer over 2,000 hours of service at various philanthropic and educational sites across greater Texas and beyond.

In 2022, we donated $5.13 million to community partners, school and member cash-back programs, sponsorships, and more.

Supporting Education

As an institution created for and by educators, we’re committed to helping our communities thrive through education. Here’s what we were able to achieve:

Members Helping Members

We appreciate our members’ support of our mission of building stronger communities. Together, all of you helped grow the credit union to over 194,000 members in 2022.
