We're just a couple of weeks past the MLK celebration in Lansing, remind the statewide business community of your, and LAFCU's involvement?

Kelli, remind us of the LAFCU footprint across Michigan and some of your credit union service features?

2023 was a good year, between awards, educational opportunities, and community involvement, remind us of some highlights?

What are you looking forward to in 2024?
