Owner's Corner

Members of Community Financial are owners.  As a credit union, we are a not-for-profit financial cooperative.  When you enter one of our branches you are a part owner.

We have a lot to be proud of as member-owners of Community Financial Credit Union. We have a significant impact on our communities. Our volunteer board of directors, elected by our membership, makes sure that “Community Financial exists so consumers and businesses in our field of membership can enjoy sound financial health, and our communities are enriched.” 

Our purpose is to help by offering competitive products and services that meet our members' needs.   As lives change, we want Community Financial to be a trusted resource that can help make your life better.   We are also committed to educating youth in our communities so they understand basic financial concepts.  We contribute time and money to service organizations that improve our communities.
Our Board is made up of nine volunteers who are elected by our membership.  They represent you and govern a financially strong credit union that is able to make a positive difference now and in the future.

Message from the CEO

Bill Lawton, CEO of Community Financial

2016 was an exciting year for Community Financial as we proudly celebrated our 65th anniversary. We celebrated our members through appreciation days, provided service, focused on their specific needs and provided special rate bonuses. We celebrated our communities, by donating both volunteer time and dollars to help enrich the lives of the people living around us.

As a not-for profit financial cooperative, we have a significant impact on the areas we serve. Our volunteer board of directors understands the importance of having healthy communities for our members to live and work in. They want local consumers and businesses to enjoy sound financial health, and for our communities to be enriched through our existence.

In 2016, we continued our support of local nonprofits through Summer of Sharing, Warming Hearts & Homes, Thumbs Up For Charity, Community Shares, and a new campaign called Thankful Thursdays. Our award winning Student-Run Credit Union program helped educate over 25,000 youth through our partnerships with local schools.

As we move into 2017 our focus will remain the same. We will continue to stand strong on our values – service, commitment and respect for our members. You make this all possible as a member-owner of Community Financial Credit Union. I hope you feel a sense of pride in being a part of a cooperative that is making a difference for our members and our communities.

Bill Lawton
Community Financial President & CEO
