ROANOKE, VA (July 25, 2023) – Member One Federal Credit Union celebrated the grand opening of its new Learning and Development Center located on its Roanoke corporate campus with a ribbon cutting event on July 25th. The renovated building, which is formerly the Main Branch facility and Human Resources department, officially began hosting employee training classes in February. The facility is now ready to officially welcome members of the community for free financial wellness and education programming.
Member One’s vision was to construct a learning center for employees and community members that provides a world-class user experience, empowering learners by utilizing the latest technologies integrated into a comfortable environment.
“The result is a modern, centralized hub for everything training, learning, and professional-development related,” said Jean Hopstetter, Senior Executive Vice President of Member One. “This project manifests our commitment to Member One’s mission: to help our members, employees, and communities flourish.”
In addition to employee development, the Learning and Development Center will be a place where Member One will host community educational events, through technology or in person, where people of all ages, from any background, and at any point in their financial journey can go to learn, share, ask questions, and enter into relationships that support financial well-being.
“This is not just a building; it’s a beginning,” stated Alex Lucas, Member One’s Vice President of Community Impact. “We hope that members of our community will grow to see this as a trusted space where they can learn about personal finance and build positive relationships that will help all of us grow a more financially stable and secure region.”
The Member One Learning and Development Center is located at 202-C 4th Street NE in Roanoke. Members of the community can view and register for free in-person seminar and webinar financial education offerings anytime online at memberonefcu.com/seminars.
