America’s Credit Union Museum Wants Your Credit Union in its New Exhibit

The story of “People Helping People” is timeless. From the opening of our nation’s first credit union in Manchester, New Hampshire, in 1909 to the work your credit union is doing today — the Credit Union Movement has always been about making a difference in the lives of its members.

As part of America’s Credit Union Museum’s 20th-anniversary celebration, a new in-person and digital exhibit is opening at the museum that will celebrate the stories and history of every credit union and their greater impact across the Movement.

The museum has requested help in capturing the history of your organization so it may be included in the museum’s database. To be included in the new exhibit, please upload your credit union’s history here.

Below, the museum has provided a few helpful hints for submitting your history:

  • When entering your data, please proofread your text. It will not be edited prior to display. We recommend typing the text in a document, then copying/pasting it into the Google Form.
  • Please be sure to name your uploaded files as indicated to ensure they are matched correctly.
    • Logo file: The file name should be “Your Credit Union Name_Logo”, for example “Bellwether_Logo.” The format should be horizontal and fit in a rectangle approximately 400 x 100 pixels.
    • All images should be in PNG or JPG format only. No TIF, PDF, etc.
    • Name photos as indicated on the form (i.e. BellwetherPhoto1) to ensure they are placed correctly.

For questions or issues with the form, please contact Brandie for assistance.
