To better serve their members and give expanding staffs room to work, more and more credit unions are finding the need to build completely new headquarters buildings, new branches, and new administrative centers. Or, to remodel and enlarge existing facilities. The usual starting point before undertaking such extensive and costly projects, besides seeking and obtaining the services of one of the many outstanding building and design firms that are doing outstanding work for credit unions, is to look around and see what other CUs have done. Knowing that few credit union officials have the time or budget to criss cross the country to check out what other credit unions have done, Credit Union Times wants to help. That’s why you may have noticed a substantial increase in the editorial coverage in this publication of all aspects of credit union facilities. Our expanded facilities coverage includes case studies, statistics, strategies, office layouts, ATMs, automated branches, drive-up facilities, costs, lists of dos and don’ts, unique designs, special features, interior decoration schemes, and of course lots of photographs and artwork of the finished projects. This newly expanded CU facilities coverage, combined with the full slate of paid display advertisements taken out by virtually all major building and design firms, makes for a great way for credit union CEOs, staffs, directors, and building committees to see what’s out there without ever leaving home base. In fact, between the articles and ads, some might call perusing the pages of Credit Union Times downright inspirational for those looking to put a new roof over their members’ and staffs’ heads. See pages 44-45 for a taste of our facilites coverage. -
