Welcome to the Simplicity Family!
Oh. My. Gosh. After months and months (and months) of Will-We or Won’t-We, Simplicity CU is thrilled to announce that CONE Credit Union members (like you) have chosen to join the Simplicity Family and build a fantastic future together. In a meeting of the CONE CU membership on June 21st, Mike Mehlberg, CONE CU President/CEO, announced the results of the merger vote in which 83% of the voting members approved the proposal to merge with Simplicity CU effective July 1st, 2021.
Members of the CONE Crew and the Simplicity Team have been working behind the scenes already, focused on making this transition, which might seem like a huge change, as frictionless as possible for you. There’s still a lot of work to do, but here’s a quick rundown of what we know today:
July 1st, 2021 – Official Merger Date
As of this day, the CONE CU members are entitled to all of the benefits of Simplicity CU membership (we’ve got some perks we’d like you to check out to get you started), but you’ll still do your business with the same account numbers, checks, debit cards, etc.
The CONE Crew will also join the Simplicity Team and be eligible for some great employee benefits.
Summer 2021 – So Much to Do!
We’ll update the branch with a fresh coat of paint and the Simplicity brand and keep working together to get everything in place to start offering the awesomely expanded list of products and services to our members in the Neenah area.
Plus, we’ll work together to make sure the Simplicity Team is trained to keep our members happy and financially healthy wherever they are.
Fall 2021 – Computer System Update
This is a big deal, so we want to do it right for you. Things like your online banking, debit card, and maybe your account numbers will change, but don’t stress. We’ll make sure to get you the most important info you need in plenty of time.
Because there are so many little steps to do this exactly the right way, we’re going to wait to announce an official date until we can be sure we’re on target. Follow us on Facebook or check out all of the info on conecu.org/merger in the meantime.
Hey friend, these are exciting times, and we know this is a lot to think about. But we ALSO know that we couldn’t be happier to be welcoming you to the Simplicity Family, and our future looks better together.
