Celebrating 75 Years
We will remember 2012 as a year the local economy saw improvement. Once again, we look around our communities and see growth. New homes are under construction. More businesses are opening or expanding. Our members are more optimistic about the future.
For the ninth consecutive year, the Board of Directors was pleased to declare a bonus dividend. Why do we continue to give our members a year-end bonus dividend? At Goldenwest Credit Union, we are strongly committed to the not-forprofit financial cooperative model. In simple terms, we return to our members what belongs to them.
It’s been 77 years since our founders started a member-owned credit union in a one-room office next to the Union Pacific railroad station in Ogden. On day one, the credit union held $10.50 in assets to make small loans to railway employees. Three-quarters of a century later, Goldenwest has grown to serve a membership base of 88,000+, holds more than $819 million in assets and operates 20 branches.
Goldenwest has experienced significant growth since opening for business in 1936, but our mission remains the same…to help our members have a brighter financial future. Your elected Board of Directors is committed to providing Goldenwest members maximum return for your patronage and support.
We are grateful to the thousands of employees, volunteers, and members who have made Goldenwest everything it is today, and who have laid the foundation for what our credit union will be tomorrow.
Chairman, Board of Directors
