While we love single employee spotlights, our small departments continue to blow us away as teams! For this reason, Augusts spotlight is on an entire department and this time it is what is known internally as the Number Crunchers of Accounting!!
MAC’s Accounting department consists of Rose Fulk, VP of Accounting; Paula Hess, Accounting Technician; and Amanda Dukes, Accounting Clerk. Accounting is both an internal and external service managing all monies coming in from member deposits, assets, and investments balanced with all debits that are required to run this organization. This team ensures that our rates are competitive to offer higher dividend yields on investments and low interest on loans, along with accurate financial reporting required by the NCUA.
Rose supervises this department while validating the financials of our company. Working tirelessly in the office and even out of town at times in order to keep our finances accurate and balanced. When asked what she likes about her job, Rose states, “My favorite part is the work we do. There is always a project to work on and we work in a positive and encouraging environment.” Rose consistently goes above and beyond to effectively validate and secure our member and corporate finances.
Paula is our bright and always smiling go-to gal for receipts, reimbursements and friendly interaction. She can always be seen hard at work doing things such as, balancing our general ledger, processing invoices, and taking the utmost care of our payroll. Paula is a real team player and you can see it through the way she interacts with not just her accounting teammates, but all co-workers within the credit union. When we asked Paula “how she would say her team thrives?” She replied, “We are a cohesive group that works extremely well together. We do a lot of cross-training to be able to cover each other’s areas when needed.”
Amanda (who we all know as Mandy) is our friendly Accounting Clerk. Mandy reconciles our general ledgers, pays corporate cards, and takes precious care of the electronic banking our members do. You can always see Mandy with a smile on her face and having the friendliest voice when on the phone with members. When asked “How would you say your team thrives?” Mandy replied, “Being cross-trained within our duties helps a lot. We can cover for each other, but most importantly we are also constantly learning new things which makes it even more fun.”
While the Accounting Department may not directly work with members, they keep this establishment running accurately, efficiently, and always balanced. They spend countless hours going over numbers and checking them twice. Hence the internal team name Number Crunchers. All to ensure that our money, YOUR money is accounted for properly, and is being used in the best way to give back to our members and our community.
The Accounting Department is recognized for all the amazing things they do day in and day out for the Credit Union. What exactly is the best thing that Accounting has to offer to the Credit Union and our members? Well, Rose says, “MAC has an amazing Accounting team that works hard to efficiently complete their duties so that they can provide an accurate reflection of the financial position of the Credit Union.” As Accounting likes to say, “Number Crunchers at your service!”
