First Florida Credit Union’s Annual Meeting Highlights How Company Turned Pandemic Disruptions into Growth Opportunities

For Immediate Release: April 15, 2021

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – First Florida Credit Union weathered the COVID-19 pandemic with
record-setting growth and innovations that promise permanent improvements for members, according to a recent report from the credit union’s leadership.

Despite the national recession and widespread economic uncertainty last year, First Florida Credit Union grew its overall assets by $177 million and disbursed a record-setting $260 million in loans. Staff members also developed adaptions that are likely to continue improving services long after the crisis has ended.

The positive developments were announced and discussed during First Florida Credit Union’s recent annual meeting overseen by the company’s board of directors, which includes:

Jon R. Lyon, Chairman
(re-elected for 3 years)

Cornita A. Riley, Vice Chairman

Dean Willis, Treasurer

Sandy Magyar, Secretary
(re-elected 3 years)

Bob L. Bull, Director

Rick M. Hood, Director

Ken Jones, Director

Nancy H. Meier, Director
(re-elected 3 years)

Kyle Peters, Associate Director
(newly appointed)

Many of the changes made last year helped members shift – without losing the personal touch – from traditional banking methods to online or digital services such as e-statements, online banking, mobile banking, and e-deposits. Video tutorials and Zoom webinars were developed to help teach members how to take advantage of new opportunities and to improve their financial education. Branches also optimized safe operations through a new appointment concierge service.

Amidst all these necessary changes, First Florida Credit Union opened its seventh branch in Jacksonville, completed renovations on its Southwood branch in Tallahassee, and spearheaded its successful #LocalStrong campaign to support charitable giving in the communities where it operates.
