The credit union was founded in 1950 for a twofold purpose:
1. To promote thrift among its members by offering to them a means for making safe and regular investments.
2. To enable its members to obtain loans at a reasonable rate of interest for worthwhile purposes.
The credit union was organized for the employees of Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company of West Virginia and The American Telephone and Telegraph Company in 8 counties and their family members. Western Electric Employees was later added.
Through the years the companies have changed to Bell Atlantic, AT&T and Lucent and we acquired through merger Eastern W. Va. TEL Federal Credit Union and PET Federal Credit Union bringing the total to 26 counties being served by our credit union.
Through the years the following credit unions, Barbour County Education Credit Union, Corhart Employees Credit Union, FESTA Federal Credit Union, and ABC Credit Union merged with us.
We have also added the employees of Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital to our field of membership.
