  • IRMO, S.C. (2/28/14)-- South Carolina Treasurer Curtis Loftis visited management and staff of Family Trust FCU, Rock Hill, S.C. ( In the Loop Feb. 27). During the Feb. 19 visit, Loftis met with Family Trust FCU's Lee Gardner, president/CEO of the $316 million-asset credit union, and David Casey, vice president of business development and government relations. Also on hand was Billy Boylston, director of government affairs, Carolinas Credit Union League (CCUL).  Loftis, who oversees state-chartered financial institutions in South Carolina, has been a longtime supporter of credit unions, according to In the Loop. "We appreciate any opportunity to arrange for our lawmakers to visit local credit unions," said league President/CEO John Radebaugh. "Credit unions have great stories to tell and branch visits like the one today from Treasurer Loftis provide a firsthand look at how credit unions are serving their members." ...

RF&P FCU, Richmond, Va., also announced it has changed its name to RiverTrace FCU . In searching for a new name, the $21 million-asset credit union "discovered that in historical context, the James River was literally 'traced' by early settlers to its most navigable point inland, which is where Richmond stands today," said President/CEO Catherine McDermott. ...
