Belco Community Credit Union, headquartered in Harrisburg, PA, held its 84th Annual Business Meeting on March 29 at the Penn Harris Hotel, Camp Hill, PA.
“We were excited to welcome so many of our members in person and virtually at our 84th Annual Business Meeting. In addition to sharing the story and impact of a strong financial year, we announced the results of our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee elections,” says Amey Sgrignoli, President and CEO of Belco. “We grew our asset size by $123 million in 2022 to reach total assets of $935 million, and we’re on track to reach $1 billion in assets ahead of our 2025 goal. Celebrating a legacy of improving the financial well-being of our 74,000 members and investing in the communities we serve, we remain driven by conservative banking principles. As we centralized lending efficiencies this year, we doubled loan production and now 70% of loan applications originate online or by phone. Our deposit growth has increased by 8.99%, and we are proud to make member satisfaction our foremost priority.”
