Greenville Federal Credit Union will hold its 50th annual meeting March 8 at the Westin Poinsett Hotel at 4 p.m. Special guest speakers will include Dr. W. Burke Royster, superintendent of Greenville County Schools, and John Radebaugh, president, Carolinas Credit Union League. Attendees will learn about special 50th-anniversary events and activities planned throughout the coming year. The credit union will also reveal a special community grants program as part of its 50th-anniversary celebration.
The annual meeting is open to all Greenville Federal Credit Union members. The annual meeting provides an opportunity for credit union management and elected officials to share information and updates with its member-owners. It is also the members’ opportunity to participate in one of the main differences between a credit union and a bank — to vote for their board members while receiving an annual financial report of the credit union.
Greenville Federal Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial alternative to traditional banking with four branch locations in Greenville, Greer, and Mauldin. The $230 million credit union was founded by nine teachers from the school district of Greenville County as an educator’s credit union in 1968. In 2001, the credit union approved a conversion to a community-based charter to serve anyone who lives, works, worships, or attends school in Greenville County.
