NAFCU 2022 Best of the Best
MemberXP, a division of CU Solutions Group, recently named Northland Area Federal Credit Union one of their 2022 Best of the Best award winners.
The coveted Best of the Best award is presented annually to credit unions that consistently provide exceptional member service. Only one in five of the highest-performing credit unions receive this honor.
A credit union cannot apply for the award. CUSolutions Group independently selects winners based on specific and rigorous criteria. Winners are identified through member evaluations and independent evaluators.
Deanna Reeves, VP of Member Service at Northland (pictured) said, "The Best of the Best award recognizes Credit Unions that excel in improving user experience, customer service, and access to tools and information. On behalf of Northland, I want to congratulate our employees who provide the extraordinary service that helps our members achieve and maintain financial health."

Congratulations to Marjie Gonzalez
After two decades of service to Northland, Marjie retired as an Assistant Branch Manager at the Gaylord Branch in May.
Over the years, Marjie helped many members and witnessed many changes at Northland. But, when asked what she will miss the most, she shared, “all of the people I work with and our members.”
In retirement, Marjie plans to finally have the time to work on projects around her home and raise a few chickens!
As she embarks on her new journey in life, she leaves us this advice – “Don’t ever give up.” Great advice, Marjie! We wish her the best in her retirement; she will surely be missed.
Gaylord Tornado Relief
Northland recently partnered with the Blue Ox Chapter of Credit Unions and the Michigan Credit Union Foundation to match donations up to $20,000 for the Gaylord Tornado Relief Fund.
100% of the donations were raised to benefit Gaylord Blue Ox Credit Union Members/residents who have suffered economic loss. All funds were raised to benefit the people of Gaylord who suffered damage as the result of the tornado.
Our Gaylord branch was narrowly missed and only suffered minor damage. However, many of the Gaylord Branch staff are involved with relief efforts and personally know family, friends, or NAFCU members that have been affected by the recent devastation.
"We found it very important to reach out to everyone affected by this Tornado in the Gaylord area, not just members or business members of Northland, but also other members of the Gaylord community who were affected," said Pete Dzuris, President and CEO of Northland.
