We've got exciting news! We're merging!

March 15, 2017

Merger Update:

As we’ve reported since our first announcement in October 2016, Mendo Lake Credit Union is joining forces with Community First Credit Union.  We intend to bring our complementary, Member-focused, community-focused financial cooperatives together!

This is an exciting transition for MLCU. Together, we will have nearly 50,000 Members and nearly $450 million in assets.  This ensures sustainability with a capital “S”, and allows us to remain the LOCAL alternative to big Wall Street banks.  It also provides us the economies of scale to bring you enhanced technological services.

Best of all, this happens without losing our personal touch.  Every existing branch, ATM, and employee will be needed.  Your neighbors and friends will remain the faces behind the desks in each of our branches - as always, they’ll be here to serve you with a smile!

As part of our merger, we will be integrating the Mendo Lake Credit Union and Fort Bragg Community Federal Credit Union Virtual Branch systems. Staff will work as quickly as possible to complete the task, and we expect the system to be available the afternoon of Saturday, November 2nd.

To ensure that all members receive ample notice of this service interruption, this informational page will be displayed every time you log into Virtual Branch through the end of October. Thank you for your patience as we make this transition!
