[News Release] – The Valley Industry Association (VIA) has taken a huge leap in productivity, after a corporate gift from California United Bank enabled the purchase of new computer equipment for VIA offices. The gift helped cover the purchase of dual laptops, docking stations, desktop keyboards and large monitors.
“Laboring with computer systems over a decade old, it was high time for a change, but adequate funding for the costly state-of-the-art systems our organization needed was a problem,” said VIA CEO and President Kathy Norris.
Instrumental to securing the new system was Greg Wells, Vice President and Relationship Manager for California United Bank in Valencia, and a member of the VIA board of directors.
“Greg is a longtime VIA member and he really got the ball rolling. We couldn’t be more thankful to him and the bank for such an amazing show of support for VIA,” Norris said. “These newer, faster systems will dramatically increase our capacity for work and bring us up to levels that allow us to interact with our members more effectively, thereby supporting our goals to connect, build and help SCV industry thrive.”
Said Wells: “VIA’s need for new computers came up in the organization’s board meeting, and when Kathy asked me for recommendations on budgeting and loan possibilities, I thought maybe we could help with a gift. Part of the bank’s mission is to give back to the communities where we do business by supporting nonprofit organizations, such as VIA, that help improve the quality of life for local residents. We believe in VIA’s mission to provide information, education and networking opportunities for local businesses and wanted to help them make a difference.”
“We are ecstatic about the gift and the difference it’s making in our operations,” Norris said.
