At FAIRWINDS, we care about you, our members.

We are honored that you trust FAIRWINDS for your financial needs. This is your credit union and we take pride in serving you and your community every day.

Our commitment to member advocacy, doing what is in your best interest, has never been stronger. With this principle at the forefront, in 2010 we brought new experiences and technologies to better serve you including a completely re-designed website, a new iPhone mobile app, and account alerts available through text and email. We also introduced a streamlined suite of checking accounts offering more value and convenience. Our Member Solutions team continues to help our members experiencing financial hardships work toward a path of financial security. We remain financially sound and secure and are considered to be well-capitalized.

We are always listening to our members. Your feedback is imperative to ensure that the credit union offers products and solutions that help improve the financial well-being of every member. Based on your feedback and comments, in 2011 we will expand FAIRWINDS University, creating an educational community that gives you access to attend seminars and workshops either virtually or in the classroom while utilizing new online tools and calculators to help you become financially savvy. Your financial well-being is paramount to us and you will continue to see products and solutions that help you achieve economic success.

As we welcome the New Year, we also welcome a new year of opportunities. A new year of success stories. A new year of hope. Thank you for your loyal membership and for allowing us the privilege to serve you.
