Dupaco Community Credit Union plans learning lab branch in Marion lowa
Dupaco Community Credit Union plans to build a full-service learning lab branch as part of a new development near the intersection of Highways 151 and 13 in Marion. The retail space is expected to open in early 2018.
Dupaco expects to begin construction on the two-story, 7,140 square foot branch in August. The new building will be among the first as part of a new, 20-acre mixed-use development called Squaw Creek Crossing, which is situated on the northeast side of the intersection. A golf driving range previously occupied the site.
While the operation hours are not final, full-service Dupaco branches are primarily designed to help members understand money and improve their financial positions. Some back-office support employees are also expected to occupy the space.
The branch also will feature a service delivery technology called an interactive video teller, which allows live tellers to conduct real-time, face-to-face video transactions from a distance. Dupaco employees located at a central location in Dubuque remotely operate the Marion lobby and drive-through video teller machines.
The new video teller technology is intended to boost the credit union’s mission to improve each member’s financial position, according to Dupaco Chief Marketing Officer David Klavitter.
“Video tellers will give members more access to Dupaco branch employees in order to have deeper conversations about money, products, and services,” he said. “We also expect the video tellers to increase future opportunities for member convenience—to serve more members, in more places, with expanded hours of service.”
In addition to the video teller technology, the Marion Learning Lab Branch will feature:
The Marion location will be the credit union’s 20th branch. Dupaco currently serves members in Linn County from three branches:
