President's Message: A Year of Strength Together

At HRCU, our commitment to your financial well-being remains steadfast. We understand the importance of fostering a strong and united community, and I am proud to lead an institution that prioritizes your financial goals and dreams.  

In 2023, we certainly faced significant challenges, particularly as interest rates continued to climb. Because we understand the toll this takes on us all, we have diligently worked to ensure our loan and deposit rates remain highly competitive. In fact, based on peer data, some of the best rates in New Hampshire can be found at HRCU. This is because we pride ourselves in prioritizing the best interests of our members at every turn and have been recognized by national industry leaders for doing so. We are grateful and honored to be recognized by Forbes as the #1 Credit Union in New Hampshire, as well as Member XP for being the Best of the Best for New Member Experience and Mortgage Loan Experience.

As you enter the New Year, you may be reflecting on the year’s roadblocks and accomplishments, while contemplating new opportunities and challenges on the horizon. It’s great timing to sketch out a financial plan for the year ahead; to lay out and rank priorities, so you can set a course of action that will not only make things easier day-to-day but also put you on track toward meeting your longer-term goals. I highly encourage you to make the most of the wide range of services and programs that HRCU has to offer. Our dedicated team is fully committed to assisting you in achieving your financial goals, and we are unwavering in our commitment to providing you with the personalized service that you truly deserve.

As we navigate through 2024, rest assured we will continue to innovate and adapt to the evolving needs of our members. We are planning several important and exciting enhancements for the year ahead. It’s too soon to share the news on what’s to come, but our team is eager to make announcements in the weeks and months ahead. Be sure to be on the lookout for updates from us on the work we’re doing to make banking with HRCU even better.

As always, thank you for being a member and trusting HRCU with your financial journey. We look forward to growing with you this year and for many years to come.
