The Member Experience - A Journey of Excellence

Member Journey Mobile Size home page

Witnessing the rapid change to society with the advent of modern technologies, East County Schools Federal Credit Union (East County Schools/ECS) is embarking on a journey that will build on current success, develop new technologies, maintain our level of excellence, and embrace opportunities of the future. We conducted a Vision Planning Workshop as the first step in this re-imagining process. The workshop included the voices of our member-owners. This collaborative day generated six major categories of ideas that we are using to guide our way forward. From those ideas, emerged the following Voice of our Membership.

A High-Tech/High-Touch Experience
Continue to keep up with the times as newer, faster and more convenient technology is introduced (High-Tech), while keeping the quality personal interaction East County Schools is known for (High-Touch).

Effective Communication Experience
Offer a variety of methods for members to communicate with East County Schools and continue to develop your social media presence.

    While overseas I found myself in the frightening situation of being out of cash and with two debit cards from other financial institutions that weren’t working, despite my travel notice pre-planning. ECSFCU’s amazing member services team stayed late on a Friday to approve and immediately fund a quick loan that made the rest of our trip wonderful. Nobody else does that! Not only is it something that I will never forget, but it’s something I want to tell everyone about.
