FORUM Credit Union celebrates 75th anniversary

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (December 7, 2016) — FORUM Credit Union is proud to announce its 75th Anniversary on Wednesday, December 7, 2016. In celebration of this milestone, FORUM invites members and the local community to participate in a member appreciation and celebration day.

The Credit Union was founded in 1941 by the employees of Indiana Bell Telephone Company. On May 1, 2000, the Credit Union changed its name from Telco Credit Union to FORUM Credit Union. In its 75 years of operation, the Credit Union has experienced tremendous growth by offering innovative services and focusing on the needs of its members. FORUM has grown from a small volunteer-operated organization to a not-for-profit financial cooperative serving more than 130,000 members. In addition to its 13 branches throughout central Indiana, FORUM also offers online and mobile banking.

“From a few Indiana Bell employees starting the Credit Union in 1941 to the present, FORUM is grateful for the loyal members who have helped the Credit Union grow to what it has become today,” said Doug True, CEO of FORUM Credit Union. “As a not-for-profit cooperative, our members are owners and their patronage has allowed FORUM to continually expand our product offerings to serve the financial needs of thousands of families and hundreds of local businesses. During our 75 years dedicated FORUM teammates, both employees and volunteers, have worked hard to further the Credit Union’s purpose of helping members live their financial dreams. We fondly reflect on our heritage and are even more excited about our future.”
