  1. $56000 in assets.
    And the agency is going thru all this work?
    What, is it a new field examiner ?

  2. Average balance is $487 per member. After 57 years open they have $56,000 in assets. What is the trend line here? Maybe the NCUA SMALL Credit Union Group and throw $100,000 in time, effort, labor, travel, etc. before throwing it into conservatorship. Ramp 'em up with home banking, Credit Cards, ATM cards, Remote Deposit Capture. NCUA should be on this like flies on poop.

  3. What are they doing with melrose?
    Water boarding?
