Annual Meeting and Election

The Annual Meeting of Destinations Credit Union will be held on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at the Best Western Hotel (Cromwell Bridge Road) from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. Join us for light refreshments, prizes and a look at the year in review, as well as the future plans of the Credit Union. The business meeting will begin promptly at 5:30.

Nominees Announced

The Nominating Committee has nominated the following individuals to run for the three (3) available seats on the 2015 Board of Directors:

John Davidson

George Hamilton

Napoleon Sykes

As there are only three candidates for the three open seats on the Board, the election will be by acclamation at the Annual Meeting on April 16th.

Voting on Merger

We are pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of your credit union unanimously approved a proposition on February 19, 2015 to pursue a merger with Automotive Aftermarket Employees Federal Credit Union (AAEFCU), retaining the Destinations Credit Union brand/identity. The Directors of Destinations Credit Union feel strongly that this merger is in the best interest of our members.

With the increased competition and economic pressures of the past few years, AAEFCU has found it increasingly difficult to continue growing its membership and loan base. In February, AAEFCU's Board unanimously voted to accept the proposal to merge with Destinations Credit Union and believes this will provide the best opportunity for its members.

For Destinations Credit Union, it will benefit our members by bringing in additional assets and members, as well as solid capital funds and very low delinquency. AAEFCU members will benefit by the increased size/economies of scale and increased product offerings.

The Destinations Board is asking for your support in this effort by voting for the merger at our Annual Meeting.

Destinations Credit Union Presents PREFACE Award

Destinations Credit Union presented its quarterly "PREFACE" award to Angela Becker. The award was established in 2014 for its employees who best exemplify its core values.

In conjunction with the Sandusky Group, Destinations' management and staff established its Core 4™ values: Passion, Respect (Mutual), Exceeding Expectations and Forward Thinking/Visionary – PREF.

The award was established to honor an employee each quarter who best exemplifies those values – its "ACE" of PREF. All employees were invited to nominate any other employee and a committee of staff representing all departments scored the nominees.

The award itself is a crystal lighthouse, reminiscent of one of Gerry Sandusky's favorite sayings, "Be the lighthouse, not the courthouse." In addition, the award recipient receives extra employee perks throughout the quarter.

"Angela has been an anchor at Destinations Credit Union for many years." stated Brian Vittek, CEO of Destinations. "She is a long-time favorite of the members and demonstrates her commitment to them every day."

Angela has been a Destinations employee for over 22 years. Having started as a teller, she rose through the ranks and held a wide variety of positions. Positions included electronic payment processor, insurance processor, plastic card processor, automobile title processor, loan counselor and business development. Currently she serves as a Loan Officer and is responsible for escrow analysis on Destinations Credit Union's mortgage portfolio.
