Board Elections for 2016
– 3 year term
I have been on the board
for over 23 years and I
currently work for one
of our sponsor companies, LeBus International. I have really enjoyed
working with the board
and staff over the years
helping the credit union
Telco Plus has been a critical piece of the puzzle for our members
since 1951. We listen and strive to solve each member’s problems
with SOLUTIONS that are best suited for them in their current situation. We would like for you to join us at the Annual Meeting to vote
on our directors, fill out surveys, and win prizes!

*You must be present prior to 7:00 pm to get your ticket to be eligible
for the cash prizes. The hopper closes at 7:00 pm sharp!
– 1 year term
I started my credit
union career at Telco
Plus in 1977. I love the
credit union philosophy of “People Helping
People”. That’s truly what
we are about. I am honored to be serving on
the Board of Directors.
– 3 year term
I’m very excited to be a
part of the Board and
helping our great credit
union. I have been in
the business and sales
industry for over 30
years and I hope my
experience will benefit
all of our members.
New Website Feature - Everything Automotive
Telco Plus is pleased to announce that we have a new
feature for our members, Everything Automotive! This
online tool will help you during the shopping process of
buying a car. The average car shopper spends 4 months
researching and about 14 hours on the internet before
they buy. Everything Automotive is a powerful tool that
lets you search local vehicles, take virtual test drives, print
FREE CarFax reports, calculate payments, and apply for a
loan. We want to help every member receive the best deal
on their auto purchase. Please visit the main page of our
website and take it for a test drive today!
EMV Readers - Easy as 1, 2, 3
News to Know
By now most people have seen the EMV chips on the cards or the
machines. We too will be switching over to the new EMV chip
cards either the first or second quarter of 2016. Your new card
will have a new number. Please start now by making a list of all
auto payments that use your current card. It will make the switch
over a lot easier. To make sure everyone understands how to use
the new machines, here are a few simple steps to help you.
Step 1 Insert the chip end of the card into the terminal
with the chip facing up.
Step 2 Keep the card in the terminal throughout the transaction
and follow the prompts on screen.
Step 3 Remove your card when prompted and take your receipt.
