Ron Belle, AmeriCU President and CEO

ROME, NY – MARCH 12, 2024: On Monday, March 11, AmeriCU Credit Union hosted the credit union’s annual membership meeting. AmeriCU President and CEO Ronald Belle, and Nick Fabrizio, Chairman of AmeriCU’s Board of Directors addressed the current membership on the credit union’s financial performance and successes in 2023, highlighting the achievements the credit union made throughout the year.

The credit union prides itself on transparency and believes in the importance of keeping their member-owners updated on the state of their credit union, as was outlined during the meeting and in their annual report. In July 2023, AmeriCU was proud to announce their largest expansion yet into 15 additional counties across the North Country, Mohawk Valley, Central New York, and Southern Tier Communities of New York State. The credit union is thrilled to expand their field of membership into now twenty-four counties to promote financial education, stability, and growth.

In 2023, AmeriCU remained committed to providing value to members through enhanced product and services, implementing innovative technologies, and first-class service. The year’s highlights included a new Virtual Financial Center, renovations of the Watertown and Auburn Financial Centers, a website redesign, an expanded Interactive ATM network, and the new mobile and online mortgage application. AmeriCU introduced Pay A Person – a mobile application that allows their members to transfer money quickly and easily from their mobile phone, Pay A Day Early which provides early access to direct deposit paychecks including pension, social security, and all income payments, My Credit Score and Autobooks. AmeriCU also gave back generously to the communities it serves and was voted a Best Company to work for in New York State. American Banker recognized AmeriCU as one of the Best Credit Unions to Work For in 2023.

As a credit union and a cooperative, AmeriCU is governed democratically by their members through an elected, volunteer Board of Directors. AmeriCU’s Nominating Committee announced that incumbents George Bauer and Joseph Turczyn have been nominated to fill two open positions on the Board of Directors. The two nominees were seated at the annual meeting.

“As AmeriCU looks ahead to 2024, we are eager to deepen the connections we have with our membership. We will continue to evolve our services to give back even more to our members and take care of those who have helped us get to where we are today as we expand forward,” said Ron Belle, AmeriCU President and CEO.

During the event AmeriCU awarded ten $1,000 scholarships to local students joined by their families and recognized for their academic achievement. The AmeriCU team looks forward to deepening meaningful connections with members and the communities they serve. The credit union’s experienced team of professionals are dedicated to helping individuals, businesses, and communities achieve their financial goals to live life, dream big, achieve financial success.
