  • CEO Corner: Cheers to a Successful Core Conversion!

    In what feels like the blink of an eye, we are already halfway through 2024. My youngest grandson, Noah, is just a few months away from his first birthday and it reminds me each day of how important it is to pause and hold on to the important moments before they fly by. As you know, MVCU completed a conversion of our core systems earlier this month, finally – and successfully! – merging all members into unified platforms. This not only marked the final step in the merger between MVCU and RTN Federal Credit Union, but the end of twelve months of preparation and hard work by both MVCU and RTN’s talented team members.
