2017 ANNUAL REPORT

2017 Annual Report

Nowadays, it can feel like we live in a world overrun with fake. Fake merchandise. Fake charities. Fake profiles. Fake news. Even fake food.

Fortunately, some things remain true. Your Local Government Federal Credit Union is one of them.

Since the beginning, we’ve stayed true to our roots and the seven cooperative principles that guide credit unions. Indeed, these principles serve as our true north. And because we stay true to the members we serve, our members stay true to us.

Case in point: In 2017, LGFCU continued to expand its presence across the state and grew its membership by 10 percent. The result? We’re now positioned to help more than 320,000 members — in large and small communities — improve their lives in large and small ways.

It’s true; LGFCU is devoted to fulfilling its mission. Scroll through this report and you'll see — the numbers don't lie.

Chairman's Letter

Dr. Aaron P. Noble Jr.

Chairman

To Our Members/Owners:

I am pleased to report that LGFCU has had another strong year of healthy growth and continues to focus on delivering valuable financial services to members. Below is a summary of how we have progressed as a financial institution this past year.

As I complete the second year of my term as Chairman of the Local Government Federal Credit Union Board of Directors, this is my final Chairman’s report to the membership. Your Board of Directors has elected to limit the Chairman’s tenure to two consecutive years. This limitation is important, as it furthers the participatory approach to governance that is a hallmark of the credit union movement.

There are several ways to measure the performance of a financial institution. Many analysts rely on quantitative signs of strength, safety and growth. Industry watchers look at the metrics and ratios that measure profits, capital and market share. These are important indicators for a run-of-the-mill financial institution. Your Credit Union is different — much different.

Focused on you

To be clear, LGFCU has performed well in all economic cycles. Since 1983, LGFCU has endured recessions, rising rate environments, varying inflationary pressures, housing industry changes and fluctuating employment rates. Through it all your Credit Union has continued to offer uninterrupted services to members. How has this been possible? The cooperative model of member ownership and member engagement keeps your Credit Union focused on what’s most important: you.

I hope every member of LGFCU is proud of their Credit Union and our record of helping you live better lives. We are on a mission to facilitate economic development and financial prosperity in every North Carolina community and in every member’s home. Permit me to briefly discuss our mission and why your Board of Directors believes it is important.

As a mission-based institution, it is reasonable for every member to judge the success and commitment of LGFCU by its actions. The success of LGFCU is linked to the security of its members. In other words, the collective progress of the Credit Union is only accomplished if the households of our members thrive. Therefore, it is critical for our institution to be consistently vigilant about what is needed to help our members thrive.

Your success is our success

We believe members thrive when they become savvy financial consumers. There is no shortage of financial information available to the public. There are literally thousands of websites, books, podcasts, videos and providers offering financial advice. Consumers need the right tools to make informed choices. Your Credit Union is committed to being your trusted source for unbiased facts and direction.

We believe members thrive when they are treated fairly. Recent headlines remind us that not every financial services company is consumer friendly or has at heart the best interests of those it serves. Hidden fees, bait-and-switch offers and predatory terms rob communities and households of wealth. Consumers need an institution that is committed to the equal treatment of all members. This is your Credit Union.

Finally, we believe members want to do business with an institution that reinvests in their communities. As a member/owner of LGFCU, you can be assured your money goes to helping your Main Street — not Wall Street. LGFCU members have assurances that their deposits work for the benefit of the membership. The business generated by LGFCU services reverberates across our great state through the market forces generated by 322,000 members.

What comes next

By now you may be wondering what your Credit Union will do to help ensure your financial future. We’ve discussed this at length and have drawn a line in the sand concerning your financial security. Look for your LGFCU to be more innovative with the enhancement of products and services. Expect us to be more collaborative with partners we believe can leverage new opportunities for you to save money. Anticipate a bold new mandate to help you make the most of your finances.

We are excited about the future of our Credit Union! However, we are even more excited about what the future of our Credit Union will mean to you. Together, we will work to make your financial goals and dreams a realistic vision.

It has been a pleasure to serve you as Chairman of your Board of Directors. While the gavel is changing hands, what will remain constant is our unquestionable loyalty to our membership. On behalf of the entire LGFCU Board of Directors, thank you for your membership/ownership. You help make it possible for LGFCU to make a difference in the lives of its members.

Aaron P. Noble Jr., Ed. D.
Chairman, Board of Directors

The True in You

At LGFCU, we understand your worth isn’t measured in dollars but rather in hard work, passion and community service. These are your truths.

Because of this, we strive to provide all the financial guidance and products you need to become the best version of your true self. Without question, our members are the genuine article, and the following stories remind us of why we’re so proud to serve you.

Addul El-Ali

Member Since: 2016

Addul El-Ali is a member of at least a dozen community groups. Yet he won’t take credit for amplifying the voices of Kannapolis' underserved communities.

I don’t do this for the recognition. If our elected officials are willing to serve, we as residents need to find a way to work with them. I believe in active citizen engagement. Working together, we can all be on the same page.”

Dan Barron

Member Since: 2009

One of Dan Barron’s greatest loves is the library. After a 30-year university career in library sciences, Dan retired to Bakersville. He was soon hired as Interim Regional Library Director. That job lasted nine years. Today, he’s a library volunteer.

What I love about the profession and the career is that I’m making a positive difference in the lives of people.”

Thurman Lindsey

Member Since: 2012

Thurman Lindsey’s work as an Electrical Utility Lineman for the City of Wilson allows him to support his community.

When you build a new power line you’re fulfilling somebody’s power needs. When you fix a line, it goes from not working to working. I’ve … found a solution to their problem. I feel like I’m helping people.”

Franco McGee

Member Since: 2008

Franco McGee carries only his phone to pay his way, never his checkbook. Through his community and faith-based groups he’s always in contact with youth, talking about the progress technology can bring to individuals and their community.

I really like to share the benefits of technology, especially mobile pay. It’s through technology that you’re going to reach the next generation of leaders.”

Allie Ptasinski

Member Since: 2003

Allie Ptasinski is a full-time college student and part-time caregiver. A Public Health major, she hopes her studies and her work will prepare her for a future in patient care.

I’ll become an exceptional health professional and provide care to those who need it.”

Jean Thompson

Member Since: 1989

When Jean Thompson looks at her childhood home, she doesn’t see a house in need of repair. It’s a place where her siblings, her children and her grandchildren can connect. Loyal to her family, Jean can’t wait to see the home she’s always loved, restored.

We grew up as a close-knit family, so I don’t know what it's like not to love each other.”

True Impact

Beyond serving the traditional financial needs of our more than 320,000 members in 2017, LGFCU was out in the community making a positive impact in the lives of thousands of others around the state.

Helping Communities Thrive

LGFCU contributed $220,500 to the UNC School of Government’s Development Finance Initiative (DFI) and has earmarked $231,525 for the DFI in 2017-2018.

The DFI partners with local governments in North Carolina to attract private investment for transformative projects by providing specialized finance and development expertise. Most impressive is the projected benefit from these investments: If all projects are completed as scheduled, LGFCU’s financial support of DFI will have seeded over $1 billion of expected investment in North Carolina communities.

The LGFCU Fellows program awarded over $170,000 in tuition to a select number of local government professionals to participate in the Leading for Results learning experience at the UNC School of Government (SOG). Participants graduated from this program with a deeper understanding of their individual leadership strengths, skills for improving their organizations, and a renewed passion for public service.

The UNC Innovation Fund provided by LGFCU grants a budget for specific School of Government projects. In 2017, this Fund provided nearly $160,000 toward government employee education through the financing of podcasts, courses, simulations and research at the UNC SOG. The Fund also helped an impoverished nation update its public health laws by sponsoring UNC faculty members’ involvement.

True Leadership

Member volunteers from across the state play a crucial role in the success of LGFCU. Volunteers serve on our Board of Directors and on committees, including the Supervisory and Loan Review Committees, as well as on the Advisory Council. LGFCU relies on volunteers to be the liaisons between existing and potential Credit Union members and LGFCU management, and to perform various audit and decision-making functions.

Our volunteers lead by example and exemplify the cooperative foundation on which credit unions are based.
