The Meister Family, Featured Member
When asked, what do you like best about MembersOwn? Melanie Meister answered, “It’s a family credit union…they know everyone!” Her grandparents and her parents have been members since it was exclusively the credit union for Lincoln Telephone & Telegraph Company and she wanted to continue the tradition with her own family.
Today, Melanie & Allison and their 3-year-old, twin girls are all members of MembersOwn. Throughout the years, they’ve taken advantage of savings accounts, checking accounts, credit cards, auto loans and a home equity loan to reach their financial goals.
“When we bought our house, we got a home equity loan and everything ran so smoothly,” Melanie says. “There was a very fast turn around.” She and Allison appreciate the timeliness but even more so, they value MembersOwn’s personable service. “When you call, you know someone will answer and that person will have the right answer for you.”
Having good, personable service is also one of the reasons why the Meister’s selected Pioneers Park Nature Center as their charity. “Our girls were part of the summer program for preschoolers and the staff did a great job,” Melanie explains. “From day one, we felt welcomed and the girls were excited to go back the next day.”
The Meister’s believe being chosen as Featured Members is an “awesome opportunity” to recognize the efforts of MembersOwn and Pioneers Park Nature Center for being family oriented and truly “welcoming” places.
