LETTER FROM THE CEO AND BOARD CHAIRMAN
To our members,
Once again, for many years now, this past year can be considered Day Air Credit Union’s best year ever. Your credit union achieved numerous successes throughout 2022 and stayed true to its core mission of enhancing members’ financial well-being. We are continuously growing yet remain humble to ensure that all members enjoy the better banking experience they’ve come to expect at Day Air.
In 2022, Day Air soared to new heights with record-setting growth, ending the year with the highest numbers ever recorded in almost all key metrics. We lent over $332 million in consumer, commercial, and real estate loans. Total deposits increased by more than 11% to over $570 million. Finally, Day Air remained the largest financial institution headquartered in Montgomery County, with more than $678 million in total assets.
Day Air doesn’t just strive for outstanding financial performance. We also take great pride in providing our members with an exceptional banking experience – and 2022 was no exception! From introducing new products to implementing innovative processes, Day Air made plenty of progress in 2022:
- Day Air’s One Click Loan offers were enhanced to provide an even more frictionless borrowing experience for members, helping them get needed funds quickly and safely.
- Day Air Members utilizing Day Air’s Cash Back Checking Account earned over $374,000 in 2022.
- Day Air enhanced its online business banking platform, BizLink 247, for an even better business banking experience. Business members can now view account information quicker, enjoy new banking widgets, and can access card controls for their business debit and credit cards.
- Day Air gave members quicker access to their credit score information by making them available within the Day Air App.
- Enhancements were made to Day Air Online Banking and the Day Air App to continue providing members with the best possible digital banking experience. Just a few of the many enhancements in 2022 included an updated card controls widget, quicker account summaries, credit scores, and new quick transfer options.
- For the first time ever, members could vote for the Board of Directors via the Day Air App. It’s likely no coincidence that more votes than ever were cast in the 2022 Board of Directors Election.
- Day Air enhanced its appointment scheduling software to make it easier for members to book appointments online, over the phone, and via the Day Air App.
- Day Air maintained its designation as a Community Development Financial Institution, CDFI, a testament to our commitment to providing financial services in low-income communities and to people who lack access to financing.
- Day Air was listed as a Dayton Business Journal ‘Best Place to Work,’ ‘Top 100 Company’, and ‘Fast 50 Company’.
- Day Air Ballpark ranked 1st in attendance among all minor league venues in the country, averaging over 7,900 fans per game.
Day Air will continue to roll out new products and services to meet Membership needs. Whether it be advancements in technology for even more streamlined experiences or enhancing opportunities to provide you with the personal banking touch, you’ve come to expect when banking with Day Air. As we continue to focus on the success of Day Air and its members, we will remain rooted in our commitment to quality financial products and services.
We look forward to growing the possibilities of members who trust us with their banking needs, along with the communities we all call home. It is an honor to serve Day Air members and assist them in making important financial decisions that will impact their lives now and in the future.
