The EP Federal Credit Union was originally chartered in 1935 by 10 employees of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing for the purpose of 'promoting thrift and providing a source of credit' for the employees there. During the late 1970's and 1980's, the credit union made several charter changes through mergers and expansions to include other organizations and grow our potential field of membership. Two major groups were the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the students and faculty of Catholic University of America and American University. We continued to serve these groups through traditional means through the first decade of the twenty-first century.
In 2011, NCUA, our regulatory agency, approved a very simple change to our name — from Engraving & Printing to EP Federal Credit Union. This change might have gone unnoticed had it not been for the accompanying huge changes in our method of service delivery. Over time, our opportunities for growth had shifted to our EPA and student fields of membership, and our board of directors made a strategic decision to employ the dynamics of technology available to the financial services industry to enhance access for our members. Along with our name change, we introduced a new logo and a new tagline demonstrating our new commitment. Our focus was redirected to virtual service delivery and to helping our members show their concern for the environment.
Through the years we have remained a strong financial institution that demonstrates our commitment to the needs of our members by providing high-quality financial products utilizing technology for high-performance in an environmentally responsible way.
The board of directors determines dividends on savings and rates on loans and oversees the operation of the credit union. Directors are elected from among the membership each year at the Annual Membership Meeting. Please contact the credit union if you'd like to find out more about volunteering for the board, or the supervisory and credit committees.
