About us

Members 1st Credit Union is a member-owned financial cooperative chartered in 1957. You are eligible to join our credit union if you live or work in the following counties: Windham, Windsor, Bennington and Rutland Counties in Vermont; Sullivan and Cheshire Counties in New Hampshire; Franklin county in Massachusetts and/or are an immediate relative of a current member.  The credit union was originally for the employees of the Brattleboro Industries Company which later became the Bookpress, Inc.  The Members 1st Credit Union name was voted in by the board of directors in 1996 and continues to stress the importance of thrift, community involvement and family in our lives.


What is a credit union?                                 

We are a not-for-profit cooperative financial institution that is owned and controlled by all of the people who use our services (called 'members').  We exist to provide a safe, convenient place for members to save money and to get loans, debit and credit cards at reasonable rates.  Like all cooperatives, we are based on the concept of "people helping people." But unlike financial institutions that are operated for a profit, all income that our credit union generates from its operation is distributed as dividends, product services and/or used to keep loan rates and fees as low as possible for our members.
