On January 28, 2012, APCU hosted its 87th Annual Meeting. We were pleased to welcome over 850 members to the meeting. We were fortunate to have had a beautiful spring-like day – sunny, cloudless blue skies and warm – certainly not a typical January day in Georgia.
In our reports to the attendees we noted that 2011 was another year of À nancial turmoil as the economy remained unsettled and interest rates hit lows not seen since the Great Depression. While the credit union felt its share of the impact from this ongoing economic downturn, we reported that Atlanta Postal Credit Union recorded another year of solid performance. Despite the downturn, APCU ended the year with assets over $1.9 billion and served the
À nancial needs of almost 100,000 members.
In the face of the challenging environment today, the credit union remains well capitalized, with an average capital ratio that is considerably higher than that which is required by regulators. This means that the credit union is well positioned to do what we do best: help people in times of need.
In normal times, the difference between credit unions and other players in the À nancial marketplace isn’t quite as obvious to most people. In the current economy, the credit union difference becomes more apparent. While other
À nancial institutions focus on what is best for stockholders, the credit union continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping members realize their À nancial goals. Whether those goals include reducing debt, buying a new or pre-owned vehicle, purchasing a new home or vacation home, saving for higher education, or planning for retirement; APCU stands ready and able to assist members through every major event in their lives.
The Board of Directors, volunteers, managers, and staff remain dedicated to keeping APCU a safe, sound, and strong credit union. We want you to feel conÀ dent that APCU will always put your best interests in the forefront. The year 2011 demonstrated once again that the values upon which Atlanta Postal Credit Union was established – long-term stability, À scal strength, integrity, and service excellence – remain a solid foundation for growth regardless of the economic climate.
We thank you for your business and the opportunity to serve you and your family.
As part of APCU’s extensive Youth Program, each year we join thousands of credit unions nationwide to celebrate National Credit Union Youth Week. While Youth Week runs from April 22nd – 28th this year, at APCU, we’ll be celebrating Youth “Month” during the entire month of April! The theme for 2012 is “Be a Credit Union Super Saver!”, and we invite you and your youngster(s) to be part of the celebration.
Simply make a deposit of $25 or more into an existing youth account, or open a new youth membership anytime during April 2012. Every young member who makes a $25 or more deposit to his/her APCU account during Youth Month will receive a super saver bracelet with a special message from the credit union.* It’s that easy!
Every member counts at APCU, and our young members are no exception. Please join us as we celebrate Youth Month, April 1, 2012 through April 30, 2012, by introducing all the members of your family, including those 24-years old and younger, to the beneÀ ts of credit union membership. Remember, credit union membership is a gift only you can give and it lasts a lifetime.
For more information, contact us at (404) 768-4126
or Toll-free at (800) 849-8431.
* One super saver bracelet per Primary Share Account. Primary account owners must be between the ages of 0-24. Deposits must be received and posted to the account between April 1, 2012 and April 30, 2012.

** Share Secured: The APR will be the dividend rate paid on regular shares the previous quarter (Index) plus the percentage shown in the “% Above Index” column above. If there is an existing balance on the date of the new advance, the existing balance will be added to the new advance and the entire amount will be at the new APR. The rates are subject to change quarterly on the 1st day of January, April, July, and October to reﬂ ect any change in the Index. Any increase in the APR will result in more payments of the same amount until what you owe is repaid.
** Certiﬁ cate Secured: The APR will be the dividend rate being paid on the Certiﬁ cate offered as security (Index) plus the percentage shown
in the “% Above Index” column above. The Certiﬁ cate must either be renewed until the advance is completely paid or be rolled over into a share account, at which point the advance will become a Share Secured advance and be subject to those terms. Failure to renew the Certiﬁ cate or roll it over to a share account will result in default under the Plan. When the Certiﬁ cate is renewed, the APR will change to reﬂ ect the new dividend rate. Any increase in the APR will result in more payments of the same amount until what you owe is repaid. The present APR and daily periodic rate for certiﬁ cate secured advances will be disclosed on the voucher at the time of the advance.
*** Partially Share Secured: The Annual Percentage Rate will be the Personal Loan rate for which the applicant qualiﬁ es minus the discount percentage shown under the “Discount” above. Payment example: Estimated monthly payment on a 36-month loan at 3.99%=$30.00 per $1,000.00 borrowed.
