Dear credit union member:
Here we grow again! As you may know, the merger between Southeast FCU and Peach State FCU was approved during the Special Meeting of Members on November 1, 2017. The financial merger became effective December 1, 2017. Southeast’s members will officially join the Peach State family after the account conversion, which is slated to take place June 30th-July 1st.
As a result of the merger, we will be gaining four new branches in the second half of the year. This includes three existing locations that will continue to be run by the same wonderful Southeast staff located in Trion and Cornelia, Georgia and Ware Shoals, South Carolina. We’ll also be adding one in Lafayette, Georgia later this year.
I’m also pleased to let you know that with the merger we will be staying true to our roots as we welcome three additional school systems and Piedmont College to our field of membership. We’re also happy to be welcoming over 200 manufacturing companies and other small businesses. This is just one of the many reasons the merger with Southeast was a good fit for Peach State – our shared focus on education, a dedication to supporting our local communities and a mission to provide quality financial products and services to our members.
This expansion is part of Peach State’s long-term strategic vision—to be a resource to communities in North Georgia and strengthen our roots in education. We’re seeing a number of commercial banks abandon rural areas in our communities. Peach State is proud to be able to fulfill the needs of local consumers, educators, county government, among others, providing them with a smart place to bank.
We wish you and your family a happy and prosperous 2018. As always, we thank you for your support and continued business. We look forward to serving you for years to come.
