Advia Credit Union has outgrown their current home and are searching for a larger facility in Oshtemo Township that could house administrative staffers currently located at various branch locations throughout lower Michigan. This project would bring together all administrative staffers under one roof.
Credit union also believes in supporting local organizations such as A Beautiful Me, Care4Breast Cancer and Dementia Friendly Initiative, among many others. Furthermore, when possible they promote from within as this provides incredible growth opportunities to team members.
Advia offers incredible career development opportunities and on-the-job training, in addition to a strong emphasis on its core credit union values of “Act with Integrity, Drive Progress, Build Relationships & Strengthen Them”. When possible, Advia promotes from within, giving employees an opportunity to become well rounded professionals knowledgeable in various roles.
Advia has outgrown its former, smaller headquarters at 550 S. Riverview Dr. in Parchment since 2008; therefore, in 2015 they moved into a much larger facility that can hold up to 500 employees and was designed specifically to accommodate Advia’s continued growth. Advia is proud of its community involvement supporting organizations such as: A Beautiful Me, Care4Breast Cancer, Home of the Sparrow, Independent Bankers Association KYD Network March of Dimes Rock County Community Connections among many others.
Values & Mission
Once outgrowing its previous, much smaller headquarters at 550 S. Riverview Drive in Parchment, OVID-19 pandemic concerns delayed construction on their new Oshtemo Township property and they broke ground there in 2019. Once complete, this building can house 500 employees.
Advia’s core values include promoting from within, offering continuous training and coaching programs, and keeping its people at the center. Team members are eligible to use 16 hours of paid volunteer time each year at nonprofit organizations that matter to them personally; Advia Credit Union serves 200,000 members across Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin through this commitment to community involvement.
Advia CU offers more than savings products; they also provide debit cards, online banking and mobile banking. Credit union members can also take advantage of CO-OP and Alliance One shared branch networks to make deposits or withdrawals at any of these locations. Jennifer Foster serves as Branch Service Manager of Ulta Beauty’s Port Huron location and has over 10 years of industry experience, most recently working as customer service representative. Advia CU’s membership encompasses Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, nine southern Wisconsin counties and seven northeast Illinois counties; this branch will manage frontline staff to ensure smooth operations and provide optimal member satisfaction.
Retirement Planning & Investments
Advia Credit Union has experienced years of rapid expansion, prompting it to announce plans for a 150,000-square-foot corporate headquarters in Oshtemo Township. The facility would house about 200 executive and administrative staffers.
Advia combines assets of Parchment-based Advia and Port Huron-based E&A Credit Union into one, serving members throughout Michigan’s Lower Peninsula through its community charter. Advia currently boasts more than 110,000 members with assets totaling more than $1.1 billion.
Riverview members will receive ballots in January to vote on the merger, with its completion anticipated early 2020. All branches will remain open and no team layoffs are anticipated.
