Southeast Corporates members speak out on corporate value
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (8/4/10)--Southeast Corporate members are speaking out about the value their corporate provides, and what life might be like if corporate resources were not available. A new Value of Ownership area on the corporate’s website features video testimonials from members regarding the value they perceive from Southeast Corporate. The first pair, in what will be a series of videos, features Mansel Guerry, president of Mississippi Employees FCU in Ridgeland, Miss., and Joe Pitcher, president/CEO of Coral Community FCU in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Both CEOs shared their perspective on the value they receive from the corporate and what things might be like without corporates as a resource. “The top of the list for me, for everybody I do business with, is I have to be able to trust them, and I trust the people at Southeast Corporate,” Guerry said. He added: “I feel like I have somewhat of a personal relationship with all the people I deal with. I know them on a first-name basis. I get quick personal responses.” “When a hurricane hit, [Coral Community FCU] was completely down, as was everything at the time,” Pitcher said in his video. “Southeast Corporate was really there for us.” He added: “If we didn’t use Southeast Corporate and had to go elsewhere for services, we wouldn’t get the economies of scale. We would be thrown to the wolves.” The website aims to serve as an educational resource for credit unions, their boards and other volunteers. It features a library of documents that help provide the “big picture” as to the volume and scope of services Southeast provides credit unions, and a cost comparison showing what these services would likely cost direct, without the cooperative resources and buying power of a corporate. Southeast Corporate’s also provides its evolving plan for the future. Links are included to three National Credit Union Administration videos that chronicle the history of corporates and the current situation involving the nation’s corporate credit union system (see News Now link for background information). Southeast plans to add resources. To see the videos, use the link.
