MANCHESTER, N.H.-NCUA Chairman Dennis Dollar participated in ribbon cutting ceremony at America’s Credit Union Museum in Manchester, New Hampshire Friday, October 18. The event was planned to coincide with International Credit Union Week activities. “It is a true honor to be asked to participate in this ceremony which will celebrate the rich history of America’s credit union movement,” Dollar said. “Literally millions of lives have been positively impacted by the movement which began on this site in 1907. This museum is a tribute to the vision of those original credit union pioneers and a challenge to continued vision for all of us responsible for building tomorrow’s credit unions.” The first museum dedicated entirely to the American credit union movement is located on the original site of St. Mary’s Bank Credit Union, which was established in 1907. America’s Credit Union Museum is sponsored and operated by the New England Credit Union Heritage Foundation. Conference and meeting space for credit union groups is also available in the three-story tribute to credit union history. “This museum will enable us to celebrate credit unions’ rich past and successful present even as we contemplate their vibrant future,” Dollar said.
