The $117 million EECU – A Community Credit Union will be known as Michigan Community Credit Union as of April 1.
The 16,800-member Jackson, Mich., institution said it was been granted permission for the name change from the NCUA and the state’s Office of Financial and Insurance Services.
EECU was founded in 1936 to serve local educators and now has a community charter to serve people who live, work, worship or attend school in 12 southern Michigan counties through its four branches, four in-school credit unions and more than 100 Financial Education school partnerships.
The name change is intended to reflect the credit union’s membership and to better position it for future growth, EECU said.
“The credit union’s name may be changing but our employees and the high level of personal service that members have come to know and trust, will continue as always,” said Steve Cobb, EECU president/CEO.
