[9:02pm] jokeefe: What’s the agenda?
[9:03pm] Bosun: We are having difficulties with PNC. We would like to step back and look for a different bank or credit union.

[9:04pm] Bosun: I am looking for something with ATMs in Boston, that has a political neutral record.
[9:04pm] designanddraft: ahoy
[9:05pm] Sayyida: is there a better bank you have any ideas of using jokeefe ?
[9:05pm] Sayyida: pnc is having us jump through stupid hoops and being unreasonable
[9:06pm] jokeefe: There are good ones, but I doubt they have branches near you
[9:06pm] Sayyida: any in chiacago you think?
[9:06pm] Sayyida: we are willing to travel for the need
[9:08pm] designanddraft: amalgamated bank was the one who worked with occupy, google maps says there is one on the north side, it could b wrong, otherwise try calling a few credit unions
[9:09pm] designanddraft: what exactly in brief is the hoops
[9:09pm] Bosun: $500 dollar minimum or $5/month
[9:09pm] jokeefe:
[9:09pm] papegaai: Title: List of All Banks in U.S. (at
[9:10pm] jokeefe: Maybe Citizens or TD?
[9:10pm] Sayyida: theres a first citizens bank near us
[9:10pm] Sayyida: same thing?
[9:10pm] Bosun: I was thinking Navey Credit Union - has the best national footprint and is a Credit Union.
[9:12pm] designanddraft: credit unions can choose to b in the national coop, there is an app, if u want to shop i can send it to u
[9:12pm] jokeefe: There seem to be branches near you. see
[9:12pm] papegaai: Title: Citizens Bank Branch Locator (at
[9:12pm] jokeefe: Searching for Navey Credit Union, not finding it
[9:13pm] Bosun: You would need at least one veteran to hold down the primary membership.
[9:13pm] Bosun: Navy
[9:13pm] Bosun: As in ships
[9:13pm] jokeefe: Navy Federal?
[9:13pm] Pirate_Joe joined the chat room.

[9:13pm] Pirate_Joe: Sorry I am late, baby pirates in need of booty
[9:14pm] Sayyida: pnc is being unreasonable and we are looking for another bank
[9:14pm] Pirate_Joe: Joseph Onoroski, Vice-Chair, MA
[9:14pm] Sayyida: ideas are citizens, or navy federal
[9:14pm] Bosun:
[9:14pm] papegaai: Title: Navy Federal Branch | Navy Federal Credit Union (at
[9:14pm] designanddraft: i was a bit late too, i thought the irc would populate with what i missed, it does not
[9:14pm] Pirate_Joe: citizens bank would be really easy for me
[9:14pm] Bosun: They are coop so all coop arms are in.
[9:15pm] Sayyida: sounds like citizens is a good match Bosun
[9:15pm] Sayyida: we are at half time
[9:15pm] Sayyida: well 3 seconds off
[9:16pm] Sayyida: Bosun, i think citizens would be a good match
[9:17pm] Sayyida: at least for distance alone for all people involved
[9:17pm] Bosun: It is east cost only Citizens Financial Group, Inc. is an American bank headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island, which operates in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.
[9:18pm] designanddraft: "coop shared branch locator" google play
[9:18pm] Bosun: Or you looking at someone else?
[9:18pm] Sayyida: i am looking at the website jokeefe sent
[9:19pm] designanddraft: sounds like cold calling is needed, r u up for that?
[9:19pm] Bosun: An ATM will not open an account.
[9:20pm] Bosun: You need a branch.
[9:20pm] Sayyida: theres a branch in bayshore i thought
[9:20pm] Bosun: Different citizens.
[9:21pm] Sayyida: noted
[9:22pm] jokeefe: banks tend to be regional, so unless we choose a mega bank like BoA, Citibank or Chase, we aren’t like to find a branch in all the states we could need
[9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: the main point of use would be in Washington D.C.
[9:22pm] Pirate_Joe: So one that is there is more important than anywhere else
[9:23pm] designanddraft: the credit union coop is national, does someone have time to shop banking?
[9:23pm] Sayyida: I know there is a chase in DC, but I personally hate chase with a passion.
[9:23pm] jokeefe: agreed
[9:23pm] jokeefe: and wells fargo is *evil*
[9:24pm] Sayyida: I think the dictionary has their logo in the definiton
[9:24pm] Sayyida: hahaha
[9:24pm] Pirate_Joe: Well, there is another option
[9:24pm] Sayyida: what would that be?
[9:24pm] Pirate_Joe: create a credit union
[9:24pm] Pirate_Joe:

[9:26pm] Pirate_Joe: Though it's honestly a lot of work for little gain
[9:26pm] Sayyida: we have under 5 min left
[9:27pm] Pirate_Joe: There is one other point I would like to discuss, but banking is important as well.
[9:27pm] jokeefe: Personally, I am rather tired.
[9:27pm] Sayyida: yes quickly please
[9:27pm] Sayyida: I am exhausted as well
[9:27pm] Pirate_Joe: PNC is a hike to get to for me, Pick a bank that works, tbh it really does not matter.

[9:29pm] Bosun: I hate national banks.
[9:29pm] Bosun: OK
[9:30pm] Pirate_Joe: That said, if we want to change banks at a later point that is not as big of a deal
