Paws & Claws Expo 2011 photos

Paws & Claws Expo - Dolled up

It’s ruff (ha!) being a pet fashion show model: all that attention and scratches behind the ear.

But our doggie models strutted their stuff down the cat (dog?) walk during Saturday’s fashion show at the Paws & Claws Expo. Check out all the pictures from the event at our Flickr gallery.

And thanks to everyone who came out to support these great pets and the Cascades Humane Society.

Staff Snowpocalypse sledding trip

Snowpocalypse Sledding - Vanessa and Katherine

Who was crazy enough to go sledding down Cascades Hill during the blizzard of 2011?

A small group of American 1 employees, that’s who.

And unlike a lot of places in town, our branches are still open to serve our members on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

Jackson and Grass Lake Christmas parade pictures

Jackson Christmas Parade - All set to go

American 1 particpated in the Jackson, Brooklyn, and Grass Lake Christmas parade this year, and we have a bunch of pictures to share. Check out pictures of the Jackson and Grass Lake parades at our Flickr gallery.

Our friends over at Home.fm took some great shots of the downtown Jackson parade, too.

Incorrect address fee (and why)

As of July 1, 2010, we started charging a $5.00 monthly fee to any account that has an American 1 Federal Credit Union mailing returned to the credit union because of an incorrect address.

An account is flagged when a mailing is returned and members have 30 days to update the address before the fee will be imposed. Once the member submits a proper change of address, the account will no longer be charged the incorrect address fee. If the monthly incorrect address fee charged takes the account to a zero balance, the account will be closed.

We receive way too much mail that gets returned to the credit union because of incorrect information. Because of out-of-date addresses, too much postage and paper are wasted.

On your next branch visit, make sure we have your up-to-date address, phone number, and e-mail address on file. Or contact us and make sure your information is up to date. As always, the best option is signing up for e-statements – that way, your monthly statements and notices are e-mailed to you, helping us to reduce waste.

Shred Day shredder winner

Congratulations to Claire Foley, our Shred Day shredder winner.

Claire stopped by our free community Shred Day to take care of some documents she had been saving. And what good timing: her home shredder just broke.

“I’ll use this shredder every day,” she said. “I want to keep it up just to reduce the clutter.”

We had about 80 people stop by the shredding event, but those people had a ton of material to shred.

Look here for any updates on future shred events!

Branches opening late for fall quarterly

American 1 branches will open later on Wednesday, Oct. 13 for our quarterly staff meeting.

Jackson-area branches will open at 10 a.m., while those branches outside of Jackson will open at 11 a.m.

We do these quarterly meetings for staff training, education, and team-building once a quarter, usually in October, January, April, and July – and usually in the middle of the month.

Sorry for any inconvenience!
