Hello World!

Overboard

We have a member who is on a trip of a lifetime!  It is one of those riverboat cruise trips in Europe. Actually, it is a “barge and bike” trip where you go from city to city on the barge and then bicycle around the various towns, historic sites, and wineries!  10 days into his two-week vacation the barge sank.  

The Little Chick That Could

Once upon a time, there was a little chick named Henrietta. Growing up, Henrietta had nothing – no feathers, no car, no house, and no money.

New Website Debut

On April 17th our new website goes live! That’s right, this isn’t a late April Fool’s joke. Our staff has worked long and hard to bring you a new and improved website.

Celebrating 60 Years!

In 1957, a group of seven SRI Researchers came together to establish this credit union. They pooled their money ($5.00 each), and the credit union was born. For the first several years, it was run out of a closet. From this first $35, SRI Federal Credit Union (SRIFCU) has grown to more than 3,500 members strong, with ten employees and assets surpassing $83 million.

Welcome to our new blog!

As you were promised in the December Hello World, we have decided to move our newsletter to a faster and more convenient delivery method. Our new blog will give us a unique opportunity to share updates, smart financial content, the latest news, tools and tips.

Season’s Greetings

This is the 60th issue of the Hello World newsletter – just in time for the credit union’s 60th anniversary next year. The members of SRI Federal Credit Union have been a delight to interview and get to know! New and unusual things we have explored include space weather, programming mobile satellites, and how researching infectious disease

 

November 2016

When I heard a member say “I had an encounter with a hot engine,” a lot of disastrous possibilities crossed my mind. First of all, “Was anyone hurt?” Not exactly, but there was an “injury.” So my next question was, “Was it a serious injury?”

No – the injury was actually to our member’s credit card; its run-in with a hot engine caused the card to melt!

October 2016

There have been a lot of changes behind the scenes at the credit union recently. We have a new chip card machine that instant-issues cards (debit and credit) in our office. Chip cards are also known as EMV (Europay/MasterCard/Visa) cards. They reduce fraud by creating a one-time passcode for every transaction and will also improve acceptance of cards in the United States and abroad.
