The Current Spring 2023

Message from our CEO


Dear Members,

Community West Credit Union experienced a meaningful change in leadership in 2022 with my appointment as President and CEO. What a journey my first six months have been. The past year has been one of learning and challenges brought on by rapidly changing economic factors. Community West continues to drive change to remain relevant while prioritizing safety, security, collaboration, automation and data-driven decisions – delivering the highest value for our members.

On behalf of the entire team, we’d like to thank our nearly 22,000 members for choosing Community West as your preferred financial partner. Thank you to our Community West team for the commitment and character they bring each day to make our work and success possible. And thank you to our Board of Directors for their thoughtful guidance and leadership.

I look forward to the opportunities for continued growth and strengthening relationships with our members, employees, and the communities we serve.

Thank you,

Heidi Hunt
President and CEO

What is a Balance Transfer?

A balance transfer is a type of credit card transaction that moves the balance from one account to another. This transaction is often utilized by those who are paying down high-interest credit card debt, and can help save you money!
