We’re re-opening our lobby!  

Beginning Monday, June 1, 2020, we’re ecstatic to let you know we are re-opening the lobby to our Main office at 9000 Kanis Rd, Little Rock. However, our branches in the Little Rock and North Little Rock hospital locations will remain closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor any developments in these locations. 

Please know, we’re making the safety and wellness of our family and members a priority as we begin to see you in-person again. You may notice it will feel a little different because we want to proceed with caution, so we ask that you continue to practice safe and healthy illness prevention methods inside our facilities moving forward. If guidelines are not followed, we reserve the right to close our facilities to protect our staff and you.

We ask everyone visiting the credit union office to adhere to the following guidelines:

• Please do not enter if you have a cough, shortness of breath or a fever or have had fever within the past 48 hours. Please stay home if feeling ill. 

• Sneeze or cough into the inside of your elbow or use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose.

• We LOVE our members and are always happy to see you. For your safety and ours, we will abstain from contact like handshakes, hugs, etc.  Please maintain a minimum 6-foot distance from other people. Please follow the floor decals while conducting business in our branches.

•Please use hand sanitizer upon entry and exit of the branch.

For safety and security, please remove your face covering long enough so our staff can properly identify you. 

• There are to be no more than 4 members in the building at any time.  If you see 4 or more people in the lobby, please wait in the vestibule or outside until one leaves.

• Once your transaction has been completed, please exit the building so that others who are waiting may enter.

• If possible, please come in alone unless you have small children. 

• You can also conduct business remotely through our home banking and mobile apps. Contact one of our staff members for more information or check out our website. (501-202-2373)
