Letter from the Chair
I grew up in a small town along the Texas Gulf Coast where hurricanes and tropical storms were forces of nature that occasionally tested the stamina of local residents. Texas, like the rest of the nation, has just weathered some economic turmoil. As in the aftermath of nature’s storms, strong and reliable institutions survive while less stable organizations are washed away.
For the past 60 years, Capitol Credit Union (CCU) has been a beacon for members as together we navigated the swings in the economic cycles. Today, our credit union stands even better prepared to serve you in the pursuit of your dreams. For some members, Capitol Credit Union is a source of friendly prompt service from people who know you as a person and not as a statistic. For others, CCU offers competitive rates on a wide range of services that reflect the interests of our state’s diverse population.
In the coming years, CCU staff will work even harder to improve both our facilities and our use of the latest technologies in ways to better meet your financial needs, including new services like home equity loans. Even as we make use of this new century’s best technologies, we will not lose focus on our commitment to excellent customer service.
Capitol Credit Union has obviously grown a lot since 1954 when it operated out of the basement of the State Capitol. Although the technology and the range of member services have evolved, the core values of this institution remain stable. Our only goal is to meet the needs of our members, who are also the owners of this organization. On behalf of the eleven-member volunteer board and CCU staff, we are proud to continue serving as your financial institution of choice.
