We uphold our fundamental responsibility to serve all people within our field of membership. We treat all people with respect and dignity and offer honest service, without prejudice, to all people at all times. We offer the best value in products and services to all socio-economic and demographic segments of our field of membership. We continually reach out to those who are in need of financial services.
We monitor and communicate our service in a meaningful way so members, potential members, legislators, regulators, and the community at large will understand and appreciate the unique role a member-owned financial cooperative plays in their lives.
Throughout Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union’s strategic plan, we will put forth every effort to enable our members to become financially self-sufficient and successful. We place high importance on consumer education and the teaching of financial thrift.
The Statement of Commitment is consistent with our credit union principles of "Not for profit, not for charity, but for service" and our philosophy of "People helping people." This statement represents good business practices to ensure the financial strength of our credit union.
Our Credit Union History
Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union was chartered by the State of North Carolina prior to the existence of federal chartering statutes. In 1937, City of Greensboro workers pooled their resources and created Greensboro Municipal. They each contributed to the founding their credit union. Now, after more than seventy years of continuous operation, that initial startup investment has grown substantially into a modern full-service financial service provider with over 5,700 members and over $32 million in assets. Greensboro Municipal changed it's charter from a state to a federal credit union in February 2011.
The story of Greensboro Municipal today is centered on members, community, growth and change. As a not-for-profit business, the credit union is committed to serving its members. The field of membership has expanded over the years; however, the employees of the Greensboro city government, located in Guilford County, North Carolina still represent a significant portion of the membership.
Greensboro Municipal Federal Credit Union has a stable core of competent, experienced and dedicated volunteers and employees. Our volunteers represent a cross-section of the existing membership and bring a valuable variety of professional experience and perspectives to their positions. Likewise, our employees bring a strong mixture of expertise and experience to running Greensboro Municipal’s operations. The board and leadership team believe that Greensboro Municipal is only as good as the people who direct, manage and maintain its operations. Based on that premise, we are dedicated to attracting, training, and retaining competent and dedicated volunteers and employees.
