Dear Honored Members and Friends,
Summer is here, along with graduation, vacations and gorgeous warm weather. We have some exciting campaigns coming that I'm sure you'll want to take advantage of. Take a moment to look through this summer's edition of the Common Bond for these great opportunities.
As a reminder, we are still offering the Bump Up – Term Share Certificate, a no-risk investment. Have you ever invested some money only to see the rates jump after you lock in your investment? With our Bump Up, you have the opportunity to bump up the rate one time during the term should rates go up. Now that's peace of mind. Call us today at 1-800-343-328 for current rates and terms.
On May 2, we held our 56th Annual Meeting at the ACCU Headquarters in Glendora, California. We presented Patricia Harris with ACCU's Employee of the Year for 2013. Also, a special dedication was presented to Barbara Ireland, wife to Reverend Ridge Ireland, who passed away at the conclusion of 2013. Ridge had been a faithful ACCU volunteer for 22 years. We rejoice knowing he is with our heavenly Father.
The 2013 Annual Report, Unexpected Grace, was distributed at the Annual Meeting. This report is reflective of our mission and our deepest appreciation for you, our members. Once again, this reflects our rich history of demonstrating our mission "To Reach, Serve, and Teach". If you would like a copy of the 2013 Annual Report, please contact us.
In partnership with Project Glendora Yellow Ribbon, we hosted Patriot Week on May 27-30, in celebration of military heroes and first responders. City officials, military groups and community members came throughout the week to special events including a Veterans Fair. The week concluded with a family event that offered games, crafts, and a special ceremony with several community organizations participating.
It is an honor to be a part of helping churches and see the work of God's hand on our mission. As a member-owner, you can share in knowing that you have participated by supporting Christian individuals and ministries. Together, our partnership gives us the chance to reach and serve others for Christ.
Thank you for your prayers and support. We value your membership and consider it a privilege to serve you. As your trusted financial partner, our mission is to keep your investments safe and sound by offering excess insurance coverage from our valued partner, American Share Insurance (ASI).
Have a wonderful, safe summer and may God bless you.
