GOODBYE LETTER FROM MARI ZUMBIEL
Mari at the 2017 NALC food driveAfter more than 40 years with Progressions Credit Union, and nearly 34 years as President/CEO, I am retiring in February 2018. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be a part of this great organization and to work for the board and members and with the staff of Progressions. 
 
It’s been a wonderful experience seeing our credit union grow and adding so many new services that our members wanted and needed over these many years. When I first started working for our credit union (Spokane Postal Credit Union) back in 1977, we had only passbook share accounts, signature and auto loans, and that was it!  We had only adding machines, no computers and we calculated the interest due on loans and dividends paid on shares by hand! Needless to say a lot has changed over these 40+ years, but one thing has not. The purpose of this credit union and our reason for being- YOU, our member owners.
 
I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to work with our members over the years, as well as their children and grandchildren. So many fine families and genuinely good people. I am also grateful for all the staff I’ve had the pleasure to work with over these many years. They are what make this credit union special, valued, and appreciated by our members.  Our current staff is a heck of a team, several of whom I’ve worked with for 20-30+ years! They of course will continue to serve you the same fine way as they always have.
 
The board of directors has selected my replacement. His name is Jay Williamson, and he comes to the credit union from Montana. You will hear more from and about Jay in upcoming editions of eNews. Jay will be only the 6th Manager/President/CEO since PCU/formerly SPCU was first formed by postal workers in 1928. The first of course being Hollis Stowell followed by Glenn Brown, Jean Stuchell, Joe Lyonnais (THE best boss and mentor) and myself. I wish Jay much luck and success being given the great opportunity to work with the best group of members, board members, and staff.
 
I would like to say one last thank you to our members, board, and staff for all your support and for all you have done to make this credit union what it is today. I’m so blessed and grateful to have been a part of Progressions Credit Union for so many years. This credit union has always been and will always be near and dear to my heart.

NEW AND IMPROVED WEBSITE COMING SOON!
 
Be on the lookout very soon for Progressions Credit Union's new and improved website at progressionscu.org. We are working hard on a new look and better experience for our members navigating our website.

What are the changes?

First, you will notice a completely new look and color palette on the website. The promotional images and text will be larger in size and easier to read, and the navigation menu is also being improved. Most importantly, the newly developed site will offer responsive design. This means that regardless of whether you are viewing the website from your desktop computer, tablet, or mobile device, the site presentation will adjust to the size of your screen. The Credit Union website will still provide a comprehensive view of the beneficial products and services Progressions Credit Union has to offer, but in a much more user friendly way.
