Happy Valley Credit Union was chartered by the State of Tennessee in1933 to service the employees of NARC & Bemberg.
Our Name was originally Bemberg-Glanzstoff Credit Union. Our name changed to Happy Valley Credit Union in July 1934. Thor Power Tool Credit Union (Alemite) merged with us in August 1979, which opened doors to take in various Seg Groups. Since then we have had two other Credit Unions to merge with Happy Valley Credit Union. Carter County Memorial Hospital Credit Union in March 1982 and Inland Container Credit Union in March 2003. We also have included in our field of membership various employer groups and most of the census tract areas of Carter County, TN and the family of members.
Credit union members are owners and decision-makers that have a say in their financial institution’s actions. They elect a board of directors to provide leadership and ensure that members’ views are represented. Credit unions offered its members an opportunity to control their financial futures.
