2018 International Credit Union Day
Thursday October 18, 2018 will mark the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day! Along with 56,000 credit unions around the world, MCWV will celebrate ICU Day and the philosophy and achievements of the credit union movement!
Join us at the credit union from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 18th for cake, refreshments, door prizes and cash giveaways!
This year’s theme is “Find Your Platinum Lining” to celebrate the history and the success of the “People-not-Profit” philosophy. “Find Your Platinum Lining” emphasizes the credit union movement’s loyalty to its members and its mission to provide them financial support and guidance. We look forward to seeing you for ICU Day!
2018 Back to School Loans Spirit Week!
This year’s Back to School Loans special included a Spirit Week! Each day’s theme was announced the night prior on our Facebook page, and members were invited to participate and join us in the credit union for fun prizes! Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for our first Back to School Loans Spirit Week! We had a great time with all of you in the credit union!
KVC of WVCUL’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament
MCWV had a great time at the Kanawha Valley Chapter of the West Virginia Credit Union League’s 10th Annual Golf Tournament for Make-A-Wish Greater PA and WV! It was a beautiful day on August 25th at Edgewood Country Club. We had the joy of having local Make-A-Wish kid, Kyler and his family join us! Kyler is a true fighter and exactly why we’re proud to support Make-A-Wish. Thank you to all of the volunteers, players, donors and sponsors who made the event possible!
2018 Youth Month
Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help your children achieve their dreams? One way is to help them learn how to save their money! With this year’s National Credit Union Youth Month, MCWV encouraged young credit union members to picture themselves in the future and develop good financial habits.
Every member under the age of 18 who made a deposit into their MCWV account(s) during the month of April earned a spin on the Wheel of Future Fun! Those deposits, as well as any deposit made into a youth account by a parent or guardian, earned an entry into a drawing for a chance to win one $100 deposit to be made by MCWV.
Congrats to 2018 Youth Month winner Owen Fisher!
This year’s theme was “The Science of Saving,” showcasing fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. We hope this year’s Youth Month inspired children to begin saving the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.
76th Annual Meeting
The 76th Members Choice WV FCU’s Annual Meeting was held on Friday, March 23, 2018. We had a great time with a photo booth, a great dinner, our business meeting and over $4,000 in cash prizes for our members!
Credit unions are owned and controlled by their members, which means “one member, one vote”. We hold an Annual Meeting every year for our members to exercise their democratic member control when an election is held for our volunteer Board of Directors. The Annual Meeting is also an opportunity to learn about financial standings, and to address any concerns or questions you may have, of your credit union.
Plan on attending our 77th Annual Meeting next year!
