Idaho Central Credit Union is replacing our current branch on North Linder Road in Meridian with a new 6,221 square foot building located at 6348 North Linder Road. This new branch will be 800 feet south of the existing branch, right on the southeast corner of Chinden Boulevard and Linder Road.

The layout of the building emphasizes natural light and has an energy-efficient LED lighting control system.

The interior of the branch has room for a branch manager, eight teller stations, five financial service cubicles, and three private offices. This spacious layout provides ample room for both members and team members.

Idaho Central Credit Union is proud to be the largest premier credit union in Idaho. With the recent expansion into Washington, we are excited to create more jobs, improve communities, support nonprofits, and help our members to achieve financial success in this new region!

ICCU originally began serving Washington members by working with dealerships to provide automobile loans through indirect lending. With our seven branches and 134 team members working in North Idaho, it became a natural progression to come over the border into Washington. Once our Washington membership began increasing, it became necessary to have physical branches in this region to be able to better serve our members’ financial needs.

Idaho Central opened our 46th branch located at 41 West Riverside in downtown Spokane in May of 2022. We have plans for three more branches in the Spokane area within the next few years and are always looking for the right talent to come on board the Green Team! We have created 20 new positions for our Riverside branch and are looking for many more individuals with the right attitude and a love for their community to apply.

One of the things that stands out about Idaho Central and our team members is the desire to improve the communities where we live and work. Team members are encouraged to complete service projects as individuals and with their teams. Our teams are passionate about the arts, academics, athletics, and of course, financial education! We have enjoyed finding new schools, charities, and organizations in the Spokane area to support through donations, education programs, and participation at events. ICCU has been ranked #1 in the Northwest for member giveback and we are always looking for ways to invest in our communities.

ICCU recently purchased the naming rights for the performing arts center in Spokane Valley. The nonprofit arts center will be a 590,000-square-foot facility that will house a main stage theatre, a studio theater, an acting youth conservatory, and a third-floor event space. Idaho Central is looking to grow our footprint in Eastern Washington and found a great opportunity in this amazing legacy project that will bring fine arts to the community.

While Idaho Central prioritizes social responsibility, we are also focused on providing world-class service to our members. Idaho Central is leading the way in digital banking with our convenient mobile app and eBranch services available 24/7. With cutting-edge technology such as being able to buy, hold, and sell bitcoin directly from the ICCU app, we are constantly looking for new ways to help our members to achieve financial success. However, we still recognize the importance of having physical locations to visit for certain financial transactions! The culture at ICCU is unmatched and we love connecting with our members on a personal level, whether that’s a smile through VideoChat, asking about your day on the phone, or greeting you by name when you walk into a branch!

Working at ICCU is more than a job, it’s a place where our team members make a difference. We pride ourselves on being one of the top financially performing credit unions in the nation, while still keeping that friendly, home-town feeling! Idaho Central has been named a Best Place to Work in Idaho for the last eleven years, with 2022 awarding us the #1 spot! Now, we need your help in bringing our award-winning culture and service to Washington. Please check out all the available positions in your area and apply at iccu.com/careers.

Idaho Central Credit Union (ICCU) Chief Executive Officer and President, Kent Oram, has announced his retirement effective December 31, 2022. The Board of Directors has unanimously selected Brenda Worrell, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, as the next CEO and President.

Oram joined ICCU in 1984 and was named CEO in 2007. During his CEO tenure, ICCU grew from $613 million to $8.7 billion in assets, $520 million to $7.4 billion in loans, $536 million to $7.7 billion in deposits, 67,797 members to 516,538 members, 249 team members to 1,700 team members and from 18 branch locations to 46. Oram was selected as the Credit Union Executive Society’s (CUES) Outstanding Chief Executive in 2013 and was inducted into the CUES Hall of Fame in 2014. He has been recognized as an Idaho Business Leader of the Year, Idaho Business Review CEO of Influence, and Idaho Business Review ICON. Oram recently served as Chair of the Northwest Credit Union Association. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees for Portneuf Medical Center as well as the Board of Directors for the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce.

Oram is a proponent of workplace culture and the impacts it has on team members and ICCU’s members. ICCU has been selected as the Best Place to Work in Idaho numerous times during the past ten years and ICCU’s interactions and contributions to its communities are impressive. Oram says, “It has been the professional honor of my life to lead Idaho Central Credit Union’s Green Team. Our mission is to help our members achieve financial success and we fulfill that mission many times daily.”

Oram continues to say, “I could not have been an effective CEO without the support of my family, particularly my lovely wife of 43 years, Dawnette. I am excited to begin the next chapter as a full-time husband, father to my three daughters Holly (Tony), Jodi, and Noelle (Clark), and Papa to our 13 grandkids.”

Idaho Central Credit Union Board Chair, Troy Neu, says, “Idaho Central Credit Union is fortunate that Kent chose to make ICCU his professional home. We have the utmost respect and admiration for how he has led Idaho Central Credit Union for the past 15 years. We thank him for his many contributions and wish him well.”

Brenda Worrell began her career with Idaho Central Credit Union in 1996. She has held various roles from Accounting Officer to Senior Vice President. Most recently, Brenda is ICCU’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Her leadership, project management, organizational, and technical skills are exceptional. She has directed ICCU’s workplace culture measurement and improvement efforts for more than a decade. Worrell has led the charge in serving underserved communities and small businesses in Idaho, by focusing the credit union’s efforts to expand products and services to meet their needs and earning Idaho Central the Juntos Avanzamos designation. Her vast experience and expertise, not only at ICCU but as an entrepreneur with her husband Joe Worrell, give her tremendous insights on the needs of ICCU’s members. She has a deep and detailed understanding of all the complicated workings of a large credit union.

Worrell serves on the Board of CURQL Collective, a collaborative organization that brings investment capital, credit unions, and Fintech together to revolutionize and innovate how people engage with their money. She is instrumental in the Northwest Credit Union Association’s efforts to review and adopt both law and regulation beneficial to credit unions. Brenda is a graduate of the CUES CEO Institute and received the Certified Chief Executive (CCE) designation. She has a master’s degree with an accounting emphasis from Idaho State University and is an Excellence in Finance award winner.

Worrell says, “It is a tremendous honor to lead ICCU in this new role. I am proud of everything we have accomplished over the last 26 years and am thankful for Kent’s leadership and mentoring. I love our mission and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our members and help them achieve financial success. I look forward to continuing our focus on delivering an exceptional member service experience and keeping ICCU a great place for our team members to work.”

Oram says, “Brenda is uniquely qualified to lead Idaho Central Credit Union. I know she will flourish and lead ICCU in amazing ways. She has the unanimous support of both the Board of Directors and the leadership team. I know she is ready and I’m proud of her.”

ICCU Board Chair, Troy Neu, adds, “Brenda is the right person for the job. We (the Board of Directors) have observed her talents and abilities for many years and are excited for the future at Idaho Central Credit Union.”

Worrell will take the reins of the organization on January 1, 2023 and looks forward to continuing the tremendous impact ICCU has on its communities, its members, and the Green Team.
