Meritus CU, formerly Lafayette Schools CU, held a special grand opening event on Thursday, June 27th to celebrate the completion of its new annex building. The 15,000 square feet structure is connected to its main branch at 515 Guilbeau Road and has new office space for its executive team and departments of Marketing, IT and Call Center. It also features a state-of-the-art training room which can hold over 50 attendants. This will allow space for new credit union community events, training, and Finacial Peace University classes, open to the public.
Over fifty community members attended this special event including representatives from the Louisiana Credit Union League and One Acadiana Chamber. The event concluded with tours, refreshments and networking.
"We've outgrown our main branch for a time now, and are beyond excited to have office space for all our staff members. With a new training room, it will allow us to expand our outreach in the community and continue educating members on best financial habits and practices," said Connie Roy, President/CEO. "As we continue to grow, the annex building can grow with us and accommodate even more staff space. This allows us to focus on our members, providing them with money-saving products and exceptional customer service."
