The California Feminist Credit Union isn’t taking any chances with Y2K.
In the ’70s, this University Heights-based credit union opened its doors, vowing to offer equal credit rights to everybody.
And in the face of Y2K, 24 years later, the credit union is stepping up to the plate again , this time to protect its members from any discrepancies that may creep up at the turn of the century.
While others are working against the clock to get their networks ready, this bank is cleaning out its attic: Candles, typewriters, hard copies of all transactions, even cross-referenced names, account numbers and index cards are on standby , just in case.
“We owe it to our members to be prepared,” said Teryl Springstead, manager/treasurer at the California Feminist Credit Union.
That’s 400 members , men and women.
