We’re in this together

As we move into 2023 and its economic uncertainty, we will continue to focus on our mission to build our members’ financial health and wellbeing. 2022 was a successful year for Patelco despite global events and some continuing effects from the pandemic. The Fed has indicated that it plans to continue raising rates to fight inflation – which is good news for savers but challenging for those with variable rate debt. Already, we’ve seen the effects of inflation in terms of members increasing spending and debt payments. Nationally and globally, the economy is projected to expand at a slower rate as financial conditions tighten. Some economists are forecasting a recession during 2023, but there’s also optimism for a pivot by the Fed later in the year towards lower rates. The labor market remains tight, which is good for workers, and many state governments are entering 2023 with record-high reserves, which could help the overall economy weather a recession this year. Whatever 2023 brings, Patelco has the financial stability to continue supporting our members and helping them deal with whatever financial challenges come.

President and CEO Erin Mendez joins Patelco Board

September 13, 2021 — Patelco President and CEO Erin Mendez has been appointed to the Patelco Board of Directors. Mendez will fill the term of former board member Emily Shubert through April 22, 2022. At that time, she will have the opportunity to be re-elected to serve a three-year term.

“Erin has been instrumental in Patelco's growth and transformation over the past eight years and we're extremely proud to welcome her to the board,” said Peter Hanelt, Patelco Credit Union's Chairman of the Board. “While it's common for a CEO to be on the board of a public company, it's certainly less so among credit unions. Appointing Erin is a recognition of her unwavering commitment to improving the financial health and well-being of more than 400,000 Patelco members throughout Northern California. It's also a result of her governance, strategic planning, and overall leadership within the credit union industry.”
