Upcoming Changes to the Dollars & Sense Newsletter
Dollars & Sense Will Become an Online, Quarterly Newsletter in 2023!
As a financial cooperative owned by our members, SLFCU continuously seeks ways to ensure we spend money wisely while also improving how we communicate to you. Beginning in 2023, the Dollars & Sense newsletter will be delivered quarterly via email, starting with a February edition. The print edition will be discontinued.
WHY IS SLFCU MAKING THE SWITCH?
Did you know it costs about $3,100 a month to print and mail the paper newsletter to more than 10,000 members? That’s an annual minimum cost of $37,200 – money that can now be allocated toward other SLFCU initiatives such as branch renovations and improving other communication channels.
Aside from the cost, each print run uses an average of 538 pounds of paper. As SLFCU continues to look for ways to reduce our environmental impact, this decision can help us communicate with members in a way that is more sustainable.
Additionally, we have found email to be a very effective way to share important information quickly. This is more important than ever in a time where the financial industry is facing fraud and scams daily. When you provide us with your email, you can rest easy knowing you will receive timely, secure communications regarding your accounts, SLFCU products and services, and upcoming events.
To ensure your contact information is up to date and that you are opted in to receiving our communications, please call us at 505.293.0500 or visit any branch.
Our commitment to make your money work smarter hasn’t changed. We want to help you make good financial decisions by providing the latest SLFCU news and information. By making the switch to a quarterly email newsletter, you will maintain access to the same information you have come to expect from this newsletter.
