North Peace Savings & Credit Union’s financial results and year in review highlights were shared at their Annual General Meeting

Fort St John, February 10th – Members were eager to hear more about North Peace Savings & Credit Union’s (NPSCU ) financial success and future expansion plans at the credit union’s 69th Annual General Meeting.

Modernization. Innovation. Dedication.
These three words define NPSCU’s strategy leading to their success this past fiscal year. Transforming the way they continue to serve members’ financial needs lead to increased member satisfaction and ability to simplify and enrich member’s lives with locally relevant solutions. Modernizing the Hudson’s Hope Service Centre not only reinforced NPSCU’s long term commitment to the community of Hudson’s Hope, but it also allowed them as the sole financial institution in the area to provide 72 hours of service for members each week.  

NPSCU’s evolving service innovation ensured that they continue to meet the personal and business financial needs of North East British Columbia. Remaining committed to meeting their members’ needs was at the forefront of their organization and they look forward to continuing to establish themselves as the go-to financial services provider. Mitchel Chilcott, CEO expressed that, ‘ Building a new service centre gives us the opportunity to contribute to positive growth and development in our community, while preparing for continued growth of our credit union.” In doing so, the credit union upholds its vision of being the preferred financial institution among small and medium sized businesses and residents in every community that they serve, delivering a service experience where, when and how a members wants.
