Haynes Circle Community

The Ohio Credit Union League created an umbrella under which all things smaller-asset credit unions can easily be identified and accurately portrays the thriving community of small credit unions. It’s like a club tailored to the challenges and needs of this important group of Ohio’s credit unions. When you see the Haynes Circle symbol, know that it represents collaboration, partnership, answers, and community.

In 2012, the League founded the Haynes Circle community so smaller-asset credit unions could easily connect and receive tailored training to answer many of the biggest questions facing small credit unions. This includes how to market on a small budget, gain new members, strengthen lending, improve board engagement, invest in technology, continue serving members impactfully, and many more.

About Rita Haynes

The identity was named after Rita Haynes, retired CEO of Faith Community United CU, after 50 years of service. “No matter what role you play in your credit union – as an MSR, loan officer, volunteer committee person, director, or CEO – the highest gratification is knowing that what you do makes a difference in people’s lives,” encouraged Haynes.
