As you may have seen in the news, Nutmeg has partnered with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles to provide DMV Express services. I’d like to take some time to talk about the reasons why Nutmeg decided to create this joint venture and the value it brings to members.
I wanted to take a moment and talk about one of my favorite areas of the credit union’s mission, our commitment to the community. If you live or work in Connecticut, you’ve probably seen us at a community event at some point over the past few years. Whether it’s at a local town event or a larger state-wide event, we are very active and get to meet many families from all over the state. As a CEO, I know the importance of this commitment and spend much of my time serving on volunteer boards and committees. Additionally, our Board and our staff are very active in the community and participate in both Nutmeg-sponsored events and other community events.
I’m very excited to report that 2017 was another busy year for the credit union! We worked hard to complete many key projects that continue to advance our strategy.
As you may have recently heard, there is a rash of fraud incidents happening all over Connecticut. Each time financial institutions make advances in protecting their members and customers, fraudsters find new and creative ways to breach security and steal money from people. These fraud rings create fake bank checks and fake debit cards in order to siphon money from accounts quickly before the victim has a chance to react. I’d like to take a moment to remind everyone of all the ways you can keep yourself and your family safe from fraud.
As you've probably heard, there are some significant tax changes taking place in 2018. Understanding these changes can be overwhelming, so I wanted to share some key highlights.
