This is a very exciting time for Wauna Credit Union and the Clatskanie community as we watch our Clatskanie branch morph into a modern Financial Center! Our Clatskanie branch was built back in 1988, and has looked basically the same for all these years! Today, with financial services changing, we wanted to create a new style of branch that serves our member needs now.
Aside from the amazing physical changes shown in these photos, the entire way our branch works will also change! Very soon when you come to our Clatskanie branch you’ll be greeted by our Member Consultants. No longer will members have to speak to different staff for loans or for transactions, they will all be able to serve in every capacity. We will also be introducing “hip to hip” banking, so instead of being across the counter, you will see exactly what out staff is doing on the computer screen!
We are also expanding our administrative area on the second floor to better serve our growing organization. Currently, our back office staff is getting rather crowded together, and the time has come to redesign our floor space to better serve our departments.
We are very excited about these changes, and we welcome the community to join us on June 20th. We will unveil the first phase of our remodeled branch and then take on the other side and finish the second floor. Stay tuned for more details to come…

From the Daily Astorian, May 20, 2016
Wauna Credit Union was recently recognized by the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) for its website update, and received an honorable mention trophy for excellence in marketing and communications during an awards ceremony and dinner April 7 held at Hotel Monaco in Portland.
The full website rebuild, which took the financial cooperative much of 2015 to create, was called bold, fresh, and modern by the judges. It features easy navigation and a responsive design, and is much more streamlined than the one it replaced.
The development team consisted of COO Debi Smiley, Stephanie Sievers, Carli Lyon, Cameron Willets, Jacob Humphries, and was led by Wauna CU Marketing Coordinator Amy Stocky, with oversight from Marketing Vice President Mike Chapman. The group worked with the Portland web developer Avtec Media.
The award was presented by NWCUA CEO Troy Stang at the gala event that honored more than 30 Northwest credit unions for their outstanding marketing achievements in 2015.
“The positive member feedback that Wauna Credit Union has received about the website since its launch has been a prize in itself for the growing credit union,” Amy Stocky said, “and now they have a trophy to prove it.”

Wauna Credit Union Clatskanie Branch Remodel Update
One of the more recognizable landmarks along Highway 30 through Clatskanie has been temporarily removed from its base along the roadside as part of the remodel project at the Clatskanie Branch of Wauna Credit Union. The popular time & temperature logo sign is now headed for re-manufacturing at Garrett Signs, Vancouver, Washington. When the re-purposed sign returns in several weeks, it will include an updated time & temperature module and display the newer logo of Wauna Credit Union, which features a beautiful bald eagle. The new sign is scheduled for installation in late June or early July.

Wauna Credit Union has scheduled an important upgrade to the system that supports our Debit & ATM Card program.
Debit card users may experience a brief disruption of service Monday, April 18th, between Midnight and 6:00 a.m. (Pacific time).
Once completed, this system upgrade will enable Wauna Credit Union to provide its Debit card users with greater security when making transactions (using new EMV chip-secured Debit cards). Learn more about EMV chip-secured card technology at our website: https://waunafcu.org/accounts/emv-cards.shtml.
If you experience any problems with your Debit or ATM Card during the upgrade period or afterwards, please call 800-773-3236 and select the appropriate prompts to be connected with our 24/7 Debit Card Support service.
ATTN: CardNav app users: If you use our CardNav app to protect your Debit card, this service will be discontinued at Midnight, Sunday, April 17th. The exact same service under the name CardValet will take its place.
Please visit our website to learn about the download and required set-up procedures so CardValet can provide you with the same level of personally controlled security for your Debit Card.
