About the B&V Credit Union
Our Credit Union was established in 1954 for the purpose of providing convenient, high quality, personalized financial services that are responsive to the needs of our members. B&V Credit Union is a separate entity from Black & Veatch Corp. While Black & Veatch is a valued sponsor of B&V Credit Union, Black & Veatch does not hold any financial interest in B&V Credit Union.
The Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee are elected from the membership at the annual meeting and serve a three year term. All positions are voluntary with no compensation.
The office staff are employees of the Credit Union, reporting directly to the Board of Directors.
The Credit Union operates under the supervision of the State of Kansas.

On June 15, 1954, B&V Credit Union was organized by a group of Black & Veatch employees for the benefit of fellow employees and their families. The first annual meeting held in October reported 66 active members with share totaling $2,051 and loans of $1,460.
Many new services and programs have been established however the original principles that the founding members wished to achieve still apply - "service and convenience," PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE. The Credit Union's strength and success is attributed to those members who volunteer their time and knowledge to build and maintain a secure financial institution.

Why Credit Unions
Credit Unions are member owned and run. That means each member has equal ownership and equal voting power - regardless of how much money a member has in their account.
Credit Unions are not-for-profit organizations. That means we return our profits to our members in the form of attractive savings and loan rates. In contrast, banks focus on profits for their shareholders You'll get personalized service you can't get at a bank.
