Resource One Credit Union, Dallas, Texas, will be celebrating its 77th Anniversary on July 15, 2013. Resource One started the celebration in May and will continue through the end of July with a special loan campaign that gives the member a choice of special financing options, as well as an additional gift. They are turning up the fun the week of July 15-20, with additional specials.

“Credit Unions are unique in the way that we focus on our members. We enjoy giving back to those who support us, through better rates, lower fees, financial education and personal service. We also look for opportunities, such as a 77th birthday to celebrate with our members and give a little more” said Jim Brisendine, CEO, Resource One.

Resource One was originally chartered on July 15, 1936, under the name of Sears Dallas Employees Federal Credit Union with a mission to fulfill the financial needs of the employees of the Catalog Order Plant of Sears, Roebuck, and Company in Dallas. Since 1936, Resource One has grown to serve more than 46,000 members worldwide.

Over time, the increased demand for more locations and additional products and services prompted the expansion of Resource One’s product lines and field of membership. Through mergers with other company credit unions such as The Dallas Morning News, Safeway, The Southland Corporation, Texas Associates Federal Credit Union, Priority One Credit Union, and, most recently, Metroplex Credit Union, Resource One has built a solid foundation from which to expand its field of membership.

“As we reflect on our accomplishments during the past 77 years, we look forward to serving the North Texas and Houston communities for many more years to come,” said Doug Bedner, COO of Resource One Credit Union.
