KINGSTON – May 31, 2010 – Churches Co-operative Credit Union (CCCU) Ltd. has expanded its service offerings to members residing in the Old Harbour area by moving to a larger facility in the conveniently located East Side Plaza. CCCU organised an official commemoration of the relocation on Friday, April 30th by hosting a ‘Members Appreciation Day’, which included a ribbon cutting ceremony, remarks by the organization’s senior officers, and a networking segment with its Old Harbour members. As part of its continued commitment to excellence in member care, a pre-event which adopted a community meeting format was held and this served as a platform to educate members about the new location, products and services. Additionally, the opening activities sought to strengthen relationship between CCCU and the residents by incorporating an informal meet and greet, and facilitated a question and answer period.
‘We felt it was important to relocate in order to better serve our members by providing more space and in turn increased privacy so they can comfortably conduct business with us when conveying intimate financial information,’ said Judith Hyllam, Officer in Charge of CCCU’s Old Harbour Sub-Branch. ‘The move also allows us to expand, including additional services’, she concluded. CCCU also decided to utilize office space in the East Side Plaza due to its proximity to the town’s centre of activities, adequate parking and accessibility to a near-by bus park.
Established in 2006, the sub-branch was previously housed at the Portmore Community College at 41 East Street and offered a range of services including savings and investment products, loans and insurance plans. The sub-branch operates from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Fridays.
