Once a Member, Always a Member

Once you join the credit union, you'll remain a member as long as you maintain your account, even if you leave our field of membership. Your family members will still be eligible to join as well. So it's a good idea to keep your account in good standing. Credit union membership is a valuable resource for you and your family!
