The Lough Credit Union AGM 2017 – 11th December

The Lough Credit Union 2017 AGM

The Lough Credit Union will be hosting its Annual AGM this coming Monday December 11th at 7.00pm at Scoil Mhuire na nGrás, Greenmount National School, Greenmount, Cork. 

The Lough Credit Union is committed to catering for and tending to its members. We pride ourselves on our personal and professional approach to lending and savings along with many other financial services including insurances, online banking and mobile apps.

AGM Prizes

Of course, we will have some fabulous prizes at our AGM, as we always do! This is one of our ways of saying thank you to our members for supporting their local Credit Union throughout the year and to toast to future successes for both us and for each and every one of our members.

AGM Competition Launches

Along with the AGM, we also have 2 competition launches. The first of these is for 2 prizes of €100! This is for all members who have their accounts fully up-to-date by January 26th and then March 2nd 2018. The second competition is a Car Loan competition for an outstanding prize of €500!

You can enter either competition without attending the AGM, but we urge all members to attend in order to have your voices heard in your Credit Union – and to win our prizes on the night of course.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday.

International Credit Union Day at The Lough Credit Union

International Credit Union Day

International Credit Union Day has been around since 1958 and celebrates the Credit Union difference – the membership between us and our members. Members always have been and always will be the pillar-stone of the Credit Union movement, which is why, yet again, we want to celebrate our members and show you all a fantastic time!

What’s Happening in Our Branches

To celebrate International Credit Union Day, on Thursday October 19th we will host a day of festivities with in-house prize-givings, colouring for children, decorations, refreshments and most importantly, smiles on all of our members’ faces! Join us to celebrate the role the The Lough Credit Union plays in our community and the close relationship that we have with our members and everyone in our common bond.

This Year’s International Credit Union Day Theme

This year’s theme was well thought out and is, ‘Dreams Thrive Here’. This is to highlight the role that Credit Unions play in aiding our members in making personal and professional dreams a reality. We have always wanted to help our members to progress in their lives and to be of benefit to them in allowing them to get themselves even further along their chosen paths with financial aid. With a host of loan and savings products, we help all of our members for newborns to the elderly to make their dreams a reality and it is what keeps us going everyday.

The Rest of Credit Union Week

So, even though we are celebrating International Credit Union Day on Thursday, 19th October, we are actually celebrating throughout the entire week, as it is Credit Union Week! For this, we will be sponsoring a generous sum of money to Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery on Friday 20th October. Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery is one of Cork’s most amazing charities. Bringing hope and love to members of the community and showing that through working together we can achieve amazing results, Cork City Missing Person Search And Recovery really is a dream organisation.

We will also be kicking off Credit Union Week on Monday 16th October at 9pm with Cork Hour on Twitter, where we will be giving away a fantastic prize!

Make sure to join in in our Twitter conversation on Monday and to call into us on Thursday to celebrate your local Credit Union while we give you prizes to celebrate our local members.

For any questions on any of the above, feel free to email Pádraig at padraig@loughcu.ie or call our offices on 021 496 3384.

Irish Credit Unions Win Customer Experience & Shortlisted For LGBT Friendly Financial Institution

Customer Experience Winners & Shortlisted For LGBT Friendly Financial Institution – Irish Credit Unions

Though it is always the case, we have to say that we are filled with pride this week, as Credit Unions have both won Customer Experience Institution of the year and have been shortlisted as Ireland’s top LGBT Friendly Financial Institution 2017. It has always been the case that we put our members first and that members have been the most important part of our dynamic – but wow, is it rewarding to see that our members feel our love!

 

Customer Experience CXI Awards – Credit Unions Top The List

The first of our astounding news is that Credit Unions have come out on top yet again as the top company in Ireland for Customer Experience. This is not the 1st time that this has happened and it’s not the 2nd either… this is the 3RD CONSECUTIVE YEAR that Credit Unions have been Ireland’s top Customer Experience Provider!

Of course, the main reason that we have topped this pole yet again is because of you. The Credit Union is Ireland’s only financial co-op between itself and its members. We ARE the community and it is because of the love that our members show us that we are able to reciprocate and provide excellent service – so thank you.

 

Shortlisted For LGBT Friendly Financial Institution

 

We are equally thrilled to be shortlisted for LGBT Financial Institution. Cork has a huge LGBT community and we are so happy to be part of such a great group of people! Corkonians alike have always supported one another and this is seen throughout the entire country – particularly being the first country in the world to pass gay marriage by popular vote. We are fully behind our LGBT brothers and sisters and are honoured to be shortlisted as Ireland’s best LGBT Friendly Financial Institution. With LGBT members of the community working in our offices and so many being our members, we are proud you know we care.

Of course, as Mama Ru would say:

And we are delighted to say that we love the Credit Union and that we love you!

Thank You!

To finish off this post, we just want to say thank you to all of our members and to everyone in the country who voted for us to win and be shortlisted for these fantastic awards. It is because of you that we are open and because of you that we can show we care.
