2020: 
Beehive’s 60th Anniversary
Shane Berger, President/CEO 
 
  

In 2020 Beehive Federal Credit Union will celebrate our 60th anniversary.  Watch for forthcoming announcements about a special celebration at our summer picnic on June 25th.  Where do the decades go?  Wasn’t 2010 just yesterday?  Maybe my advancing age causes the years and decades to pass faster.  Beehive has experienced many changes and much growth in the last ten years.  Assets have more than doubled from $148 million to over $310 million.  Membership has increased from 18,000 to over 31,000.  Also notable and important is the growth of reserves or capital, which has strengthened from $15.6 million to over $32.6 million despite a deep recession for much of the first part of the past decade.  This strong capital position is important because you can feel assured knowing your credit union is strong and stable.  Not only have we weathered past economic downturns, we are prepared for any future economic storms.

‘Tis the Season – for Fraud!

We have recently enjoyed the Christmas season and it is one where we focus on the joy of giving. Others, however, are focusing on the profit of taking – social security numbers, login information, card data, and more! There has been an increase in scams and fraud circulating around. Fraud scams can include (but are not limited to): pop-up messages on computers saying your computer is infected with a virus/malware, fake calls from Verizon or the IRS claiming you owe money, and even thieves posing as “fraud prevention agents” trying to get you to confirm sensitive information.

Threats can come from phone calls, texts, emails, or social media. These scams are engineered to create a sense of urgency for maximum response from potential victims.
