Support the New America’s Credit Union Museum

5/29/18

America’s Credit Union Museum opens a new chapter with the grand opening of the CUNA Research Center June 27. Credit unions can support museum by becoming sustaining members.

For decades, credit unions have been making a difference in people’s lives by helping them become financially stable. Now the important history of credit unions is being documented at America’s Credit Union Museum.

The museum is located where the country’s first credit union set up shop in 1908—Manchester, New Hampshire—and features the credit union story from institutions across the country. New this year: The CUNA Research Center which has its grand opening June 27. The newly renovated facility will provide a first-class and multi-dimensional experience for visitors who will see dynamic exhibits that focus on archives, artifacts, and memorabilia. The Research Center will also include the Dick Ensweiler Research Library, a state-of-the-art meeting and conference space.

NWCUA has collected memorabilia to tell about the unique credit union history of the Pacific Northwest. The artifacts will be displayed in the research library, allowing visitors to learn about the background and continuing story of the region’s credit unions.

NWCUA member credit unions can honor the shared history of people helping people and support the museum’s efforts by becoming a sustaining member and by donating or leasing memorabilia from your credit union. The museum is interested in artifacts that include books, awards, antique equipment, photographs, historical documents, and other ephemera.

Credit unions can also pledge their support through becoming a sustaining member of the museum. The sustaining member program offers benefits that can be found by visiting America’s Credit Union Museum website. Follow this link.
