Stamford Credit Union, Inc. Charter Ceremony

Stamford Credit Union Charter CeremonyState Banking Commissioner John P. Burke presents a state charter license to officers of Stamford Credit Union, Inc., formerly known as Stamford Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union. 

The credit union, located at 888 Washington Boulevard in Stamford, operated as a federally chartered credit union since 1984. Last year, its members elected to convert to a state charter, the third federal credit union to make the switch in the past two years. 

The credit union serves employees of the City of Stamford, their families, and other select groups closely associated with city government. Currently, the credit union has 4,200 members.
