Special Member Message

DCCU Chairman of the Board, Jeff Heil

DCCU Chairman of the Board

Dear Members,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Dane County Credit Union and as your Chairman, I am pleased to share some exciting news with you. Your Board of Directors has voted unanimously for Dane County Credit Union to form a partnership with Heartland Credit Union to become one organization.

Heartland Credit Union is headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin and has locations throughout the southwestern part of the state. This partnership will create a local $600 million credit union serving 37,000 members. Visit to learn more about this locally focused credit union with whom we will be proud to partner.

The most important factor in the decision to join forces is the added benefits for DCCU members. Heartland Credit Union shares the same commitments of providing exceptional service and value to enhance each member’s financial wellbeing and to make a positive community impact. Together, our combined resources will allow for improved services, more convenience, greater access to cutting edge technologies that simplify banking, and more meaningful returns to the community.

While this change is strongly recommended by your Board of Directors and DCCU management, a decision to combine the two credit unions is dependent upon you, the members of Dane County Credit Union. Members will cast their votes in an upcoming election. In addition, you are invited to a special meeting where members will have an opportunity to meet the leaders of both credit unions and discuss the partnership.

The most up-to-date and complete information about the partnership, the special membership meeting, and the election will be available on December 28.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Dane County Credit Union, I sincerely appreciate your consideration of this important issue. We hope you’ll join us in looking forward to the exciting future direction of DCCU. I encourage your support with a “yes” vote on the upcoming ballot.


Jeff Heil
Chairman of the Board
