Our Credit Union was organized in 1962 by the employees of Gibbons & Reed (purchased by Granite Construction in 1995) for the purpose of banding together to help each other prosper financially.
The Credit Union was not established to compete with local banks and other financial institutions, but as an alternative avenue, whereby the members not only own the organization, they can have a say in how it is managed through the annual elections of member-officers.
Loans are made to our members (fellow employees) using the savings deposited by the members. The interest paid on loans is utilized to cover the expenses incurred by the Credit Union, maintaining capital reserves, and the remainder returned to the members in the form of dividends. The only other income to the Credit Union is from the interest earned on short-term investments of excess cash deposited by the members. The goals of the Credit Union are quite simple and highlighted below.
