On Sept. 29, 1934, 25 passionate Ohio credit union leaders converged in downtown Columbus to cooperatively promote, protect, and advance the newly born Ohio Movement by establishing the Ohio Credit Union League. Since that fateful day 86 years ago, Ohio credit unions have powered the League’s mission to help foster Movement growth and cooperation by molding the League into a thriving, independent, and indispensable force for credit union and member success. From $12.7 million in collective assets and serving nearly 200,000 members in the late 1930s to today’s $34 billion and more than 3,000,000 members, Ohio credit unions remain vibrant, financial safe havens, and the League is proud to continue encouraging, supporting, and complementing the Ohio Movement’s progress. So, let’s celebrate nearly 100 years of partnership and look towards another century of helping people and communities achieve their dreams with credit unions.
