Six months into the $3.5 million renovation of 104 S. Washington Square, officials at the
MSU Federal Credit Union
expect work on their new Downtown Lansing facility to be completed mid-March. An official opening event will take place in April.
“This branch will be full service,” says April M. Clobes, MSUFCU executive vice-president. “You can open a new account, apply for loans, [and] conduct transactions. We also have business account services and loans.”
During the July 2010 ground-breaking event, officials announced the new branch would employ 15-20 new employees.
According to Clobes, the hiring has already begun.
“We have hired several of the staff and expect the remaining positions to be filled in the next few weeks,” she says. “We hired ahead to focus the new staff on training and our service philosophy. This allows us to open the branch with a fully trained and knowledgeable staff.”
The Downtown Lansing Branch will be the MSUFCU’s ninth location. In September 2010, MSUFCU announced the beginning of construction on an additional branch on the corner of Farm Lane and Mt. Hope. This branch will take replace the current Crescent Branch location.
