The Year of Adapting

Dear Members:

The year 2020 has been challenging for all of us. Members encountered financial hardships, employees adjusted to remote work, and organizations we support saw an increased need for assistance.

Although we’ve been faced with obstacles, the AFFCU team has adapted and come together to provide our members and community with Integrity, Service and Excellence, at every available opportunity.

Here are just a few of the ways the credit union shifted gears to be of greater service: We modified our internal processes to follow the CDC COVID-19 recommendations and ensured options for safe ways for our members to conduct business. We raised 12 million meals for the San Antonio Food Bank’s Summer Meals for Kids program in partnership with Texas Homes, Subway and Kens5. We launched the new mobile payments option: Digital Wallet. AFFCU was honored with the Designation of Savings Excellence by the Military Saves Program. And most recently, I joined the AFFCU staff as President/CEO.

With 2021 on the horizon, we know that things are likely to change again and I know that AFFCU will continue to adapt. Our members and the communities we serve are the reason we strive to provide you with innovative products, services, and financial education resources. We can assure you that we will continue these evolving efforts throughout the year ahead.

The AFFCU staff and I look forward to meeting your financial needs on the journey ahead. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season.

Sincerely,

 

 

 

 

 

Ryan Ross

President/CEO
