Marshfield – During the week of October 14, Marshfield Medical Center Credit Union (MMCCU) will celebrate their members in conjunction with International Credit Union Day on October 17.
On Tuesday, October 15, MMCCU is hosting an Open Enrollment Event from Noon – 5:00pm at their West Upham location. Staff will be on hand to answer questions and set up appointments for prospective members.
On Thursday, October 17, MMCCU will offer a free lunch for members from 11:00am-3:00pm.
“The purpose of Open Enrollment Day is to build awareness that the credit union is here for health care personnel and combine that with a fundraiser for October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said President Carol Adler. For each visitor from noon – 5:00pm, MMCCU will donate $5.00 per visitor/member (up to $1,000) for breast cancer research, support, prevention, etc. at Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS) Foundation.
MMCCU membership is exclusive to individuals working in the health care field and their families. This includes dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, chiropractors, appointment coordinators, research, analysts, administrative, home health care providers, physicians, pharmacists, medical technologists, medical assistants, dental crafters, dental hygienists, assisted living providers, health insurance personnel, and more.
The benefits of joining a member-owned cooperative are unique, with a focus on creating a value for members versus generating profit.
“Member-owned cooperative principles means the primary mission is to provide financial services to our members that benefit them by costing less and saving more,” said Adler. “We do not have stockholders who need a monetary return so profit is not our greatest focus.”
“By joining MMCCU, you allow us to provide a personal level of financial service with a comprehensive list of products and programs combined with being a valuable resource for financial education,” said Adler. “The members come first and we are dedicated to the health care affinity group.”
With a vision to stay relevant to their members by evolving to meet their needs – whether through technology, better rates, low fees, or special products, MMCCU aims to always put members first.
“We are grateful to members for their support, especially during our renovation project recently completed,” said Adler. “We invite them to stop in and see the updated building, visit with staff and register to win some super door prizes (must be a member to win a door prize). We will have treats each day with Thursday, October 17 offering lunch from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.”
