“We are honored to be an integral part of this Lauderhill community. The credit union is proud of our involvement in local events, our commitment to financial education and our dedication to the counselling of new immigrants, many of whom are unfamiliar with our financial system,” says Lloyd Gill, President and CEO.” “We are giving members the tools to make their dreams come true.”

Building construction has already begun and the branch is expected to open in December of this year.
