What is a credit union, anyway?
By definition, a credit union is a cooperative financial institution, owned and operated by its members. Simply, that means that the members of a credit union are also its owners. A volunteer board of directors who are also members, oversee the credit union. So, the people who make the decisions are the people who actually use the services of the credit union. That keeps savings rates fair and loan rates affordable.

You live, work, worship or attend school in Davidson or Sumner Counties of Tennessee.

Does it cost anything to join?
There is a one-time $1 membership fee due at the time membership is opened. A $25 minimum deposit to a Primary Savings Account is also required to establish membership.
