Florists' credit union finds niche
Railway Employees Credit Union was founded to serve a core group of employees, in this case, employees of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Ditto for Colfax School Employees Credit Union in Raton — the smallest of them all — with just 170 members and $300,000 in assets. The “office” is located in a filing cabinet behind CEO Carolyn Hestand’s desk at Raton High School, where she is also works as the district’s special education secretary.
Without credit unions like Colfax, a lot of working people in the state’s smaller communities would not have access to credit or financial services, said Hestand. Many members are retirees.
“They like the way we do business,” said Hestand of loans for cars, horse trailers and vacations.
Florist FCU has $8 million in assets, said Kenn Bell, president of the credit union, the only one chartered in the U.S. to serve the floral industry. “What makes us unique as a small credit union is we know more members by name, their stories, their challenges,” said Bell, whose three-person staff wears a lot of hats. “I know over half our members and can recognize their voices (on the phone),” he said.
Members tend to be low- to middle-income earners, Bell said. They are designers and drivers, often single parents or the sole bread winner in their families. “As such, many often don’t have great credit scores, so we have had to change up our model for lending,” said Bell.
Services important to members are remote deposit capture, mobile banking and access to an ATM service through the Illinois Credit Union League because it’s very focused on serving the needs of small credit unions.
“We have a very robust ACA (Automated Clearing House) program with another vendor,” said Bell. “We are an $8 million credit union, but we send and receive about $16 million in transfers each year,” said Bell.
Started in 1955, Belen Railway Credit Union has outgrown the living room of one of its founders and several other locations to serve its 2,000 members, which include railroaders and their families as well as vendors serving the industry.
Automated banking is very important to railroaders, since many are out of town a lot, said Gerry Troyer, CEO and president of the seven-employee credit union with $28 million in assets.
“If a smaller credit union can find a niche and a purpose, you are going to be OK. But you’ve got to find that niche,” Troyer said.
