The year of the pandemic - 2020. We can only hope that in our lifetime, we can always refer to it as “the pandemic.” We need not experience more than one. To say that the year was a challenge would be an understatement. The good news is your credit union emerged from the challenge stronger than ever.Download
The year of 2019 was one focused on building. Following the merger and data conversion, we made building a focus here at Partner's 1st. Taking the now larger organization and adding necessary resources and infrastructure was paramount. To that end, we placed our attention in a couple of areas: software and facilities. Nearly all departments were impacted.Download
During 2018, we worked hard to provide a smooth consolidation of Partners 1st Federal Credit Union and General Credit Union. The merger in late 2017 was not fully completed until the data conversion on April 1, 2018. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure a seamless data conversion for our newest members. We are pleased to report that their efforts were very successful.Download
For Partners 1st, 2017 was a banner year! In the first quarter, we began talks with General Credit Union, Fort Wayne, on the possibility of a merger. Both board of directors recognized that growth is vital to the long-term health of any organization. By merging two strong, healthy credit unions, we could expand our products and services for our member’s benefit as well as provide economies of scale throughout the organization.Download
