New Member Spotlight: Bellwether Community Credit Union
For over ninety years, Bellwether Community Credit Union (BCCU) has provided banking services to the communities of Southern New Hampshire. Telephone Credit Union of N.H., the predecessor of BCCU, was founded by a small group of Bell Telephone System employees as a credit union for telephone employees. In 2001, Telephone Credit Union of N.H. received a charter to provide membership to anyone working or living in New Hampshire. In 2004, Telephone Credit Union of N.H. merged with Greater Nashua Federal Credit Union, and in 2005, changed its name to the Bellwether Community Credit Union.
Today, BCCU operates three branch locations and serves a membership of over 28,000 with a diverse offering of personal and business financial services. Their mission is “to deliver outstanding value by conveniently providing a full range of competitive financial services in an environment of extraordinary service.” A not-for profit credit union run by a volunteer Board of Directors, BCCU returns any profits back to its members “in the form of better rates, lower fees, and more services.”
BCCU has also become an incredible corporate citizen in Southern New Hampshire, supporting local organizations such as the Palace Theatre, the Currier Museum, the NH Food Bank, local youth sports teams, as well as activities for both the Nashua and Manchester Chambers of Commerce.
The New England Council is proud to welcome Bellwether Community Credit Union and looks forward to their active participation on our Financial Services Committee.
