Sponsor Spotlight: Civic Federal Credit Union

Between now and the start of the 2021 Summer Conference, an occasional series on NCLGBA’s blog will shine a spotlight on our conference sponsors so that you can get to know them and the services they provide.  First up is the Civic Federal Credit Union – a Presenting/Title level sponsor for 2020-21.

Strength of Public Service

In the words of Condoleezza Rice, “There is no greater challenge and there is no greater honor than to be in public service.” The trust that communities put in your abilities as budget professionals is immeasurable. From leadership to strategy and financial management, your work impacts North Carolinians in real ways.

Choosing a financial partner that shares this commitment to service can add value to your planning and help your team achieve its financial goals.

A Shared Commitment to Service and Innovation

Civic Federal Credit Union was founded for this very reason. Civic was created for people who serve local communities and their friends and families.  And just as budgeting and financial strategies have been modernized over the years, our teams provide secure, online financial options to individuals and small businesses to help scale up or help maintain steady growth.

It is in this spirit, that we are a proud sponsor of the NCLGBA 2021 Summer Conference and the important work of budget professionals in local government.

Modern Banking with Technology [and Personal Service]

Meeting the needs of local communities has been the goal of credit unions for hundreds of years. Now, Civic has created a modern, online credit union with fast access, new efficiencies, and opportunities for members to earn, grow and save money.

We believe a commitment to service is a commitment to empowering people.

For this reason, Civic blends technology and people to exceed member expectations across North Carolina. Using a mobile device or computer, members access low rates, ways to earn high dividends, and custom financial solutions. And our members have access to Customer Experience professionals who can guide everything from opening an account to options for equipment financing.

It is this combination of people and technology that helps communities and small businesses unlock opportunities for economic success.

Innovation for Budget Professionals

While budgets determine the available resources, Civic helps to maximize those resources and stay on track to bring budget innovation to your organization. As a full-service financial Federal Credit Union, your funds are federally insured by NCUA up to maximum account limits.

And the shared appreciation between a budget professional and a financial institution for maximizing budgets is not lost on us. Anytime an organization can earn, save and grow funds—while saving time, is a viable option worth exploring.

Moreover, as a Civic member, you have access to some of the lowest rates available and flexible terms including:

  • Personal and small business loans
  • Home equity loans
  • Rewards credit cards (cashback)
  • Vehicle loans
  • Financial well-being guidance
  • Deposit accounts
  • Rewards Checking accounts (earn dividends on balances)
  • Commercial real estate loans
  • Affinity debit cards
  • Certificates of deposit
  • and more…

Proud Supporters of Fire and EMS

Our Civic teams are committed to helping people and creating a strong sense of community. With new digital tools and efficiencies, local government organizations are earning more on their deposits.

And local volunteer fire departments, EMS, and police departments are accessing affordable financing for equipment and vehicles. We have given more than $3 million to the North Carolina State Firefighter’s Association through our Affinity Card program. And Civic financing has helped communities build more than 100 firehouses and financed more than 650 emergency vehicles.

Across North Carolina, there are community groups with important programs that serve local needs. Civic’s partnership team works with local change-makers to help accelerate nonprofit programs designed to serve needs such as food insecurity and access to equitable lending.

Resources for Communities to Thrive

At Civic, we see the role of budget professionals as the key to helping local communities achieve financial success.  And together in service, communities can be even stronger.

Sponsor Spotlight: LGFCU

Between now and the start of the 2016 Summer Conference, an occasional series on NCLGBA’s blog will shine a spotlight on our conference sponsors so that you can get to know them and the services they provide.  First up is the Local Government Federal Credit Union – an annual Legislative level conference sponsor.

LGFCU_2C_logo-cmyk

The Local Government Federal Credit Union, or LGFCU as it is commonly known, is a not-for-profit, full service financial cooperative. LGFCU offers Checking, Share, and Money Market accounts; auto, home, and personal loans; Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs); credit cards, insurance and more. It is the only statewide credit union exclusively serving North Carolina municipal and county employees, elected/appointed officials, volunteers and their families. Rather than operate its own branches, LGFCU partners with State Employees’ Credit Union to share its network of more than 250 branches and nearly 1,100 ATMs across the state. So when you visit a SECU branch, you are also visiting a LGFCU branch.

LGFCU provides scholarship funds for local government employees to apply towards tuition for conferences, classes and seminars offered by the UNC School of Government (SOG). LGFCU supports the School of Government because of the instrumental role it serves in the professional development of its membership. Are you thinking about in taking a course, but not sure if your jurisdiction will be able to cover the cost?  Learn more about the scholarships they provide here.

Interested in hearing from an NCLGBA member who has been awarded a scholarship? Stephen Hawryluk, Senior Budget & Evaluation Analyst from the City of Winston-Salem describes his experience with LGFCU,

The Local Government Federal Credit Union has been more than a local banking institution for me. I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from the LGFCU in the fall of 2010 that covered the entire registration costs for the Municipal and County Administration course at the University of North Carolina School of Government. That course has been a valuable asset in my development as a local government budgeting professional and I cannot thank the LGFCU enough for going above and beyond in their service to members and the jurisdictions they serve.”

In addition to their scholarship program, LGFCU covers the entire cost of tuition for two cohorts to attend an intensive two-week leadership development program at the UNC School of Government each year. The Local Government Federal Credit Union Fellows Program includes coaching and leadership training.  Learn more about it here.
