Giving Tuesday

Today we celebrate Giving Tuesday, a day of generosity. The Golden Mile is home to a number of non-profits, including our very own Golden Mile Alliance. Your support of these local organizations -- today and everyday – is what continues to make our Golden Mile community so special. Please consider supporting the work of the Golden Mile Alliance today - Giving Tuesday - by making a donation:

Golden Mile Alliance Lunch and Learn Virtual Seminar

The Golden Mile Alliance and Nymeo Federal Credit Union realize that this is a very busy time for businesses as they focus on making the upcoming holiday shopping season a smashing business success.  As a result, we have decided to postpone the “Lunch and Learn” seminar on Retirement Plans for Small Businesses into the new year.  A new year is a great time for businesses to consider new ideas for investing in their employees.  A new day for this “Lunch and Learn” will be provided once we consult with the Nymeo financial advisors providing the seminar.

Nymeo business workshops

Nymeo is starting a series of workshops for businesses that we are calling Business Elevation Workshops to be held quarterly.  The first one is Tuesday, November 9th, and will be about our credit card processing solutions.


Due to an unforeseen change in schedules, the State Comptroller’s office has cancelled the upcoming press conference that was to be held at the Nymeo Buckeystown Pike Branch office Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
