Last week, Patelco CU hosted a grand opening party for 400 members and other guests at its new headquarters location in Dublin, CA. Local and regional dignitaries gathered with the community to enjoy food, beverages, live music, prizes and a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring remarks from Dublin Mayor David Haubert and Patelco CEO Erin Mendez.

“It is because of our members that Patelco is here to serve and build financial health and well-being for today and tomorrow’s generations,” Mendez said. “Our members have made this new facility possible, and I am forever grateful for their faith in us to help them achieve their respective financial goals.”

In addition to Mayor Haubert, Patelco hosted Dublin councilmembers Jean Josey and Shawn Kumagai,, along with City Manager Linda Smith, Assistant City Manager Colleen Tribby and other important staff. The event was also co-hosted by the Dublin Chamber of Commerce, including President and CEO Inge Houston and staff. Rahul Maharaj from Rep. Eric Swalwell’s office (D-CA) also attended, along with multiple representatives from local nonprofit and credit union partners.

From the state level, representatives from California Sen. Steve Glazer and California Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer-Kahan also attended, as well as California Credit Union League Political Advocacy Manager Heather deNecochea and Advocacy Specialist Emily Udell. As part of the ceremony, Mendez was presented with certificates of recognition from both the California State Senate and the California State Assembly for the positive impact Patelco has made within the community.

The new headquarters accommodates Patelco’s growing workforce, which moved in December after an extensive remodel following Patelco’s purchase of the building in 2017.

The remodel included adding private offices for members to meet with Patelco financial health counselors, along with classroom space for Patelco to provide financial classes and seminars to further its mission of improving the financial health and wellbeing of its members throughout northern California.
