Reed City and Evart Grand OpeningReed City Grand Opening Image

On Thursday, January 26th, 2023, Reed City and Evart branches had their Grand Opening! Free giveaways, food, and large raffle prizes were a part of the celebration. Northland expanded its field of membership to Michigan’s western and northern lower counties. The National Credit Union Administration approved the expansion in 2022.

Pete Dzuris, President and CEO of Northland said, "With so many eservice banking options currently available, expanding our services to the western and Northern lower counties makes sense. As we see many big banks leaving rural areas, Northland sees an opportunity to serve the need of our members and underbanked in those areas." . Northland is pleased to serve 27 counties with 16 branches.
