Presidents Message: November 2015



60 Years of Inspiring Smart Decisions

At UCCU, we embrace every new year with great excitement, because we know that a new year brings new opportunities to strengthen our community and help our members make smart financial decisions. But this next year is going to be something very special.

2016 marks the 60th anniversary of Utah Community Credit Union. Think of that. 60 years, right here in Utah Valley. Of course, things were very different six decades ago. With only seven original members—all of them BYU employees—and $35 in assets, UCCU began as BYU Employee’s Federal Credit Union, a financial institution owned by its members, founded on the simple ideal of “People Helping People.”

We’ve sure come a long way in the past six decades. In fact, 2016 marks another enormous milestone in UCCU’s history: the year that our financial institution exceeds $1 billion dollars in assets. And the secret to our success is no secret at all. Our growth and longevity have been built on that same, simple philosophy: “People Helping People.” For sixty years, this philosophy has been our guiding light and it’s helped us build a credit union that is truly safe, secure, and stronger than ever. And in 2016, we plan to celebrate ‘60 years of inspiring smart decisions.’

While we don’t want to give away all of our upcoming surprises, we can tell you that 2016 will bring opportunities to win a UCCU Smart Car, receive special member appreciation gifts, vote for charities to receive donations, and a whole lot more. Visit for more information.  As we celebrate 60 years, we’re firmly focused on building for our future.  Construction on UCCU’s new financial center in Thanksgiving Point continues on schedule and will include a full-service branch office with drive-up windows, a drive-up ATM, and six floors of additional office space that will provide immediate return on investment as well as future opportunities for expansion and sustainable growth.

Like I said… 2016 is going to be very special at Utah Community Credit Union. So look forward to lots of exciting news and announcements. And as always, thank you for choosing UCCU as your financial partner.
