Welcome to the very first post of our Members 1st Credit Union blog!
We’re glad you’re here, and we hope you’ll come back often.
We have lots to share about how being a member of Members 1st has its many advantages.
We want you to get the most out of your membership and we’d like to highlight some of those services, programs or features monthly.
Just reading our name tells you the most important thing about us – our members are our top priority at Members 1st Credit Union.
However, did you know that our name is relatively new?
Even though we’ve been serving members for quite a few years, Members 1st Credit Union was formed when two existing credit unions joined together:
Southpointe Credit Union – formed in 1951 to serve the needs of Assumption Catholic Church in St. Louis, then broadened its charter in the early ‘90s to serve the community, and Jeffco Credit Union – established in 1972 to serve all of Jefferson County.
Those two solid and admired credit unions combined resources in 2015 to form what you know today as your Members 1st Credit Union.
We’ve been honored to continue to build on the long-standing traditions of service that go back more than 60 years, serving people who live or work in St. Louis County, St. Louis City, Jefferson County, Franklin County and St. Charles County in Missouri, as well as Madison County and St. Clair County in Illinois.
Want to know what drives us to put our Members needs 1st? Take a look at our Mission and Vision statements that are at the forefront of every decision we make:
MISSION STATEMENT: Members 1st Credit Union assists its members through a wide assortment of products and services to make sound financial decisions that lead to their improved financial well-being.
VISION STATEMENT: Our vision is to be our members’ most trusted financial partner. They think of us first because they know we have the products and services to meet their financial needs and the capability to deliver those products and services in the manner that is the most convenient for them.
They also realize that we will always strive to do what is in their best interest.
Members 1st offers a wide variety of products and services for personal and business banking, including checking and savings accounts, credit and debit cards, mobile banking, loans, individual retirement accounts, a nationwide ATM network and more.
As a member-owned credit union, we’re different than a bank. Because we are a not-for-profit financial cooperative, our staff and management are committed and better positioned to serve our members’ individual financial needs.
As a credit union member, you are also an owner.
We operate like a business; however, the profits are returned to members in the form of incredibly competitive rates, programs and dividends.
