How Do You Measure The Value Of A Loan?

We’ve started asking this question throughout North Dakota.  Value implies more than just dollars and cents.  Value means an addition that makes one choice preferable over the other, like amenities at a hotel.  We have the ability to compare savings when shopping online for airfare or car insurance.

At Dakota West, we also want to start a conversation about our values – what we believe and what we practice when we service a loan, when we help a new member open an account, or when we complete a transaction at our drive-through windows.  We value the trust that our borrowers place in us.  We value the commitment made by our team and our members when we enter this partnership.  And, above all else, we value the relationship that grows while working with our members.

We find value in doing more for our members, not just in our branches, but in our communities.  This past week we sponsored the Fusion Conference in Bowman.  This autumn we’ve driven in homecoming parades in several communities (when the weather didn’t rain on our parade).   We are in the midst of our campaign to support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in Fargo.  We support local rodeos, fairs, school sporting and booster events, and regional tournaments.  We volunteer as emergency responders, in our state parks, with community organizations, and at our churches.

Our values and the way we serve our members, put simply, come down to this:

We are ready to listen.

We succeed together.

We can do this together.

We value your trust.

That’s how we measure our values.
