An Expanding Community
Over the years, the credit union membership expanded to assure the strength and stability of the cooperative. Soon others were eligible to become members, including employees and students of other schools both in Albuquerque and nearby Los Lunas and Bernalillo. Educational retirees and employees of the University of New Mexico and University Hospital were also welcomed.
In 1982, to reflect its growth among education-related employees and family members, the credit union’s name was changed to New Mexico Educators Federal Credit Union. When it began in 1936, the credit union operated out of the office of the secretary at Albuquerque High School. By 2014, it had grown to 16 offices in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas, Santa Fe, Taos, and Socorro.
A New Chapter as Nusenda Credit Union
Building on nearly a century of experience, relationships and stability, we strive to continue our tradition of evolving to serve our members better. We adopted the name Nusenda Credit Union in 2015 to reflect our expanding capabilities, and we now offer more than 500 ways to join our cooperative.
