Leslie Mehaffey, Vice President of Compliance, shared the below memories with our employees today.

"Did you know that Beacon Credit Union became 77 years old last month?  Yes, on August 23, 1939.  When I came to work for Beacon (June 13, 1997), we just had one location-Fenwick Drive.  

We were in the basement of the Virginia Credit Union League—no drive-thru or ATM and were called Virginia League Central Credit Union (VLCCU).  Thursday & Friday afternoons our members would line up out the door to cash or deposit  their checks.  

When we first moved to Logans Lane, traffic would be backed up and we sometimes had to pull traffic control duties in the parking lot. Now look at us—over 70 some employees, six branches, a service center, a Corporate office and many departments to support staff."

Leslie Mehaffey has been with Beacon since June of 1997. With 23 years of prior banking experience, she uses her knowledge of compliance related issues to keep Beacon up to date on changes and new regulations. She is truly dedicated to our member's financial success. Leslie retires in November of this year.
