CEO Membership Update-May 31, 2020

We are here for you each and everyday!

Dear Members:

It is nice to see some positive news about the regional economy slowly returning to improved operational conditions. We are actively planning to return to a more normal operating status, with in-person transactions resuming, as appropriate conditions allow. 

While an exact date has yet to be chosen, we expect to begin to allow members into our main office facility in mid-June. 
We will communicate the exact date once it is known. Our team misses our members and looks forward to seeing your (partially covered) faces again!

More importantly, we continue to help members with their borrowing needs each and everyday! 

Whether it be a need for financing a vehicle, purchasing a home, or a personal emergency, we are here to help you in a professional and prompt manner. 

Our staff has done an impressive job serving the membership under stressful circumstances these past several months, so please offer them kind words when you can – they deserve it!

I am happy to announce that, beginning in June, we will have a Facebook page that will be used to communicate with all of you on a more regular basis. You will be the first to know when it goes live so that you can “like” the page and stay informed!

Please refer family members and coworkers to join our growing E&G family – it is easy to apply online! 

I wish everyone the best of health and financial security during these trying times. I will continue to communicate with all of you on a regular basis, through email on our website: www.egefcu.com and on our new FaceBook page soon.

Thank you for your patience and your membership!
Garrett R. GizowskiCEO

To sign up for e-statements, you must be enrolled in home banking system. you will need to log into home banking, click on “Your preferences”. Then click on “e-statement selection” and choose “Electronic”. Click yes to save settings and you are all set.

If you choose to continue with paper statements, a $2.00 paper statement fee will be assessed for each statement. the $2.00 fee will be deducted from the primary share account.
