(FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz. – Feb. 10, 2017) –Washington Federal is pleased to announce Patricia Snyder, personal banker at the bank’s Fountain Hills branch, which is located at 16600 E. Avenue of the Fountains, will be hosting a workshop on online banking as part of the town’s Technology Learning Center’s Winter Curriculum on Friday, Feb. 17.
“Patricia is our tech guru,” said Marianne Pinter, Washington Federal’s Fountain Hills branch manager. “Patricia offers one-on-one sessions to our clients not only to share what our online program has to offer, but also to assist them in setting up and navigating through it as well. Patricia believes in the significance of our Client Experience and is all about building relationships with clients. It was natural for her to volunteer sharing her knowledge with our neighbors.”
The workshop will take place at the Technology Learning Center, which is located inside the Fountain Hills Community Center at 13001 N. La Montana Dr., from 10 to 11 a.m. This workshop is free and will teach participants about the simplicity of online banking, safety precautions and security measures banks take to protect a person from fraud or identity theft, as well as malicious software that hackers use.
“I am so excited to be able to teach community members about the benefits of online banking,” said Snyder. “This is the first type of this class offered at the Center, but we hope to make it a more regular occurrence.”
The Fountain Hills branch is very active within the local community. Previously branch members have also taught a financial literacy class to high school students at the local Boys & Girls Club, teaching them how to save their money, read a pay stub and more. This year they hope to have their most involvement yet, as they are celebrating their centennial anniversary and want to share it with the communities they serve.
