Welcome to Coosa Valley Credit Union,

In 1954 nine General Electric Employees recognized the need for a financial alternative and started our Credit Union. They believed in the simple philosophy of "People Helping People" which is the backbone of what the credit union movement is all about. Today, a 15 member Board of Directors and staff of nearly 100 employees continue to believe in that same philosophy.

Coosa Valley Credit Union provides a full range of financial products and services to anyone who lives in the 10-county Coosa Valley area, including Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Paulding, Polk, and Walker Counties. Businesses located within these counties can also take advantage of the services Coosa Valley CU has to offer.

What we started in 1954 has grown to become one of the largest credit unions in Georgia with approximately $300 million in assets. We currently have branches located in Rome, Cartersville, Rockmart, and Cedartown. Coosa Valley Credit Union offers a wide variety of savings, checking and loan products. We are constantly adding and improving our products and services to meet the needs of our current and future members. We invite you to browse through our site and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you now and in the future.

Our Story

From the humblest beginnings to a multi-million dollar organization Coosa Valley Credit Union has a history built on the caring, hard-working people of the Coosa Valley Region.

In 1954, nine men had a vision of each one helping the other. These nine GE Company employees pooled their resources, depositing $5 each into a cigar box. Their cumulative $45 would help see each one through many a rainy day.

On May 7, 1954, the National Credit Union Administration granted a charter to the General Electric Employees of Rome Federal Credit Union.

Since then, many changes have occurred. In 1984, the "Field of Membership" was expanded to allow other employee groups to enjoy the privileges of membership. In 1985, Inland Employees Federal Credit Union merged with General Electric Federal Credit Union.

To better serve its members, offices were opened in other areas. In 1985, an office was opened in Hickory, North Carolina. In 1995, offices were opened in Cartersville and in East Rome.

A major change occurred in 2001 when the credit union's charter was changed to a Community Charter, allowing a broader membership. This permitted membership to anyone who resides in the 10-county Coosa Valley area, including Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Paulding, Polk, and Walker Counties.

In 2002, the new name of Coosa Valley Federal Credit Union was adopted to reflect the area served by the credit union.

Cedartown, Georgia became the home to an office of Coosa Valley Federal Credit Union in 2003.

Along with the growth of membership, the expansion of offices and change in charter, Coosa Valley Credit Union has changed in the scope of services offered. In addition to checking, savings and loan services for individuals, Coosa Valley Credit Union has added electronic on-line banking, audio response, credit card services, ATMs and a full array of business services. Coosa Valley Credit Union is continuing as a visionary organization, constantly searching for ways to better serve members.
