    Be Part of Something Bigger

    When you chose to become a member of SCU, you chose to be part of something bigger. Banking with your local credit union means you’re keeping your dollars local – invested in the people, small businesses and community initiatives you care about. It also means you’re not just a customer or a client, you’re an owner with a say in how our credit union is run.

    Each year, members elect members to fill vacancies on our Board of Directors. Our Directors have a passion for our community and are dedicated to helping guide our credit union while representing the needs of our members as a whole.
