New Website Coming Soon
We're really excited about the upcoming launch of our new website which will contain even more financial education content for our members. It will sport our new corporate logo and colors and will provide an optimal viewing experience through its responsive design for easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors).
Stay tune for more details!
New Logo & Corporate Colors Transition
As we transition to our new logo and corporate colors, you'll notice some of our communications with our old logo and colors and some with the new (including our new Smartphone and Tablet apps).
We're not trying to confuse you; we're just saving our member-owners (you) money!
We're using up most of our existing stock before we start reprinting material with our new logo. So for the next several months, you may see two different logos and corporate colors.
And don't forget, our redesigned website is coming soon!
