Our story began November 1937 as North American Aviation Employees Federal Credit Union. At that time, we had minimal capital, a limited number of share accounts and loans– and no paid employees. The Credit Union was run by a seven-member, all-volunteer Board of Directors, and our original branch was located in the North American Aviation’s Inglewood facility.
As you can imagine, things are very different today. While much has changed, the mission remains the same – to help members save money, make money, and save time.
