The new Interactive Teller Machine service, dubbed "Live ATM" by MVFCU
, offers members the benefit of performing most transactions usually handled by a brick and mortar lobby teller at more remote locations and with expanded hours--with no ATM card required.
In the early 1980s, MVFCU's charter was expanded to Matanuska Electric Association's service area, which expanded the scope of the credit union to Eagle River.
MVFCU now operates eight community offices, in Palmer, Wasilla, Eagle River and traditionally underserved areas like Willow, Sunshine, Big Lake and Meadow Lakes.
Cooperation among cooperatives is important, Strawn said, which is why MVFCU has been managing a credit union in Sitka, ALPS FCU.
ALPS' board of directors requested MVFCU's assistance and received it.
