Dear Valued Members,

In our Fall 2019 Newsletter, we communicated that your credit union had plans to temporarily close the Vernon Main Branch starting on March 2, 2020, to address Heating and Cooling (HVAC) upgrades to our building. Since that announcement, we received a consulting report indicating that the tiles on the exterior of our building were nearing the end of life and required replacement.

As a result of this report, we have decided to put our main branch HVAC upgrade on hold in order to address the exterior needs of the building first. This was not our plan going into 2020; however, we must be diligent in following the expert’s reports and address the highest priority items ahead of taking on other projects, including the HVAC upgrade. Similar to what any homeowner knows – addressing the highest priority projects first is of utmost importance in order to minimize challenges.

We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. And although it is unfortunate that we have had to make significant changes to our capital update plans, we feel this change will ultimately help to minimize the impact to our members, as we can now address these projects one at a time.

In summary, our main branch HVAC upgrade is on hold as we work on addressing the tiles on the exterior of our building first. Our members are very important to us and we will work hard to minimize any potential impact on you during the completion of any work we do.

Thank you for your continued support of VantageOne Credit Union.
