always say
'Good Morning, Gigi!'

“I was referred to be a Columbia Credit Union member back in 1992. Since then, I’ve gotten my three sons to join. I love their low interest rates for my car loan and credit cards—but also that when I walk into the credit union I always feel welcome. Their customer service is amazing.”    

– Gigi, member since 1992
