needs. “We’re committed to maintaining the personal touch that our members have become used to over the years,” Hedley says. Hedley and Dereniwski both credit the staff for what has been a smooth transition. “We now have 90 talented and well-trained employees who can offer expert services to our members,” notes Dereniwski. Although staff members have been able to keep their positions and continue to work in their home communities, amalgamation also provides new opportunities for advancement and further training in their field of choice — which will mean more defined help in areas such as loans and deposits that might not have been available before.
Continued Commitment to Community The management and staff of Catalyst Credit Union remain dedicated to the people of their community. Credit union employees have a history of generosity and contributing their time as volunteers remains a priority. Participation and financial support for local events, youth programs and clubs will be maintained. “Commitment to community is one of the Cooperative Principles, and ours is stronger than it’s ever been,” says Hedley. “Catalyst Credit Union will continue to lead the way and make things happen in every community we serve. That’s what a catalyst does.” For more information about Catalyst Credit Union, call 204.622.4500.
