Join Us at the Annual Meeting
The Credit Union's 2015 annual meeting is just around the corner, and we hope you can join us. Unlike other financial institutions whose meetings are
restricted to a few shareholders, your credit union is a financial cooperative with meetings open to its valued member-owners: You! So plan now to attend to learn about the elections to the Board of Directors, hear about how the credit union fared in 2014, and get the scoop on what's on tap in 2015.
Give us your feedback and let us know how well the credit union is serving your financial needs. Tell us about what we're doing right as well as your suggestions for making improvements. Enjoy the chance to visit with other members. The credit union exists only to serve you and your support is greatly appreciated.
This year's Annual Meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, at 801 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA in the Community Meeting area on the third floor promptly at 5:30 p.m. The agenda will include reports to the members from the President, Treasurer, and the Credit and Supervisory Committee Chairpersons. The Board will meet after the general membership meeting to elect their officers.
Everyone who attends will receive a free gift and will be entered into a drawing to receive one of several cash prizes. We look forward to seeing you there!

One and Done: Consolidate Your Debt
If your mailbox is filling up with mail from a guy named "Bill," it's time to visit the credit union to talk about a consolidation loan. We'll work with you to pay off those high-interest credit cards or other high-rate debt that has accumulated. With a consolidation loan, you will have one payment to make at an interest rate that's fair. Almost always, that means you'll pay less total interest as well as have a lower monthly payment. You can consolidate up to $10,000 worth of debt with Media Members Consolidation Loans for five years with an interest rate as low as 9.9% APR. Instead of constantly revolving debt, why not be sure to pay it off with a closed end loan. You can have a Consolidation Loan in addition to a personal, car or home equity loan. With a Consolidation Loan from the Credit Union, you can get your life back on track to financial freedom.
We'll also give you tips on how to control your spending so that you don't find yourself back in the same situation in the future. For example, we may suggest you put your credit cards on ice - literally - by immersing your plastic in a container of water, then placing the container in the bottom of your freezer. If you really need to use your card, you can dig though the leftovers and thaw it out. But most likely, you'll be better able to resist impulse shopping. With a consolidation loan from the credit union, you can get your life back on the track to financial freedom.

interest rates of 12.9% APR* for our Classic and 9.9% APR* for our Platinum
