I think it's great that Community Credit Union will remain in the shared branch network even after it converts to a bank. I would welcome banks in our FSCC shared branch network provided that they agree to our rules and pay our fees. Why? Because more outlets will result in better member convenience. Every credit union in a shared ATM network uses bank ATMs; every credit union with a VISA program must accept bank VISA cards; every credit union processes checks and other payments with and through banks. We do those things to better serve our members. I don't see a philosophical problem with any type of sharing with banks that is in our member's best interest. (Editor's Note: This letter came in before it was announced that Community CU will no longer be a part of the Texas Shared Service Centers. See story on page 1).
