Message from the CEO

First New MemberAwakon Federal Credit Union opened its new Gaylord branch on May 21, 2014. This full service branch is the credit union’s first location in Otsego County and its fifth location in Northern Lower Michigan.

The new Gaylord branch includes a full service drive-through, drive-up ATM, and a state-of-the-art full service lobby area. Awakon provides consumer financial services products including checking, all types of consumer loans, mortgage lending products, business products, and shared branch locations to access accounts nationwide.

“We are pleased to respond to both member and non-member requests to open a new branch location in Gaylord.,” said Scott M. Pauly, President/CEO of Awakon Federal Credit Union. Pauly, as well as other credit union CEOs across the state have worked diligently on educating consumers on what a credit union is and the benefits of becoming a member. “Attaining membership is easy and well worth it considering all the benefits you receive from being a member.”

A Grand Opening event is scheduled for June 26,2014, which will include a ribbon cutting ceremony. Management, Board of Directors, and employees of Awakon will take that opportunity to formally thank all of the local contractors and city representatives who diligently worked and assisted on getting the new branch up and running.

“We continually seek opportunities to expand our services, value, and convenience to existing members, and to welcome new members to Awakon,”stated Pauly.
