Mid Oregon Credit Union Grows to 40,000 Members
August 3, 2021
Mid Oregon Credit Union, the only financial institution headquartered in Central Oregon, has announced that it has grown to 40,000 members as of July 31. In the last two and half years, the credit union has added 5,000 additional members.
“We continue to attract new members who prefer a local partner to help them achieve their financial goals,” said Bill Anderson, CEO of Mid Oregon. “Our credit union is expanding right along with Central Oregon’s communities. Anyone who lives in this region can join. This milestone is the result of our ‘good friends, great service’ values and focused strategy to be the premier provider of financial services in our region.”
The credit union’s members have also played a significant role in the expanding membership base. Mid Oregon’s Tell-a-Friend program offers gift cards and prizes to members who refer friends or families to open a new checking account. In the last 12 months, member referrals increased by over 25%.
Mid Oregon has had much to celebrate in recent years. The credit union reached $500 million in assets in March 2021. In November 2020, a newly-constructed branch in Sisters opened. Mid Oregon has also granted more than $1.5 billion in loans to Central Oregonians since 1957.
“Our board and leadership team continue to look forward to ensuring our financial products and services provide value to our members,” said Kevin Cole, President of Mid Oregon. “With our organization’s growth, we are cultivating a culture where our team members can advance, build a career, and provide exceptional service to our members. We are currently looking for motivated people with a positive attitude to join our team — no prior banking experience is needed.”
