Here’s a look back at ours

 

 

1939

The people of Northwestern Bell Telephone Company come together to charter a new credit union, and call it Sioux Falls Bell Federal Credit Union.

1940

Elsewhere, Midwest Partners Federal Credit Union gets chartered by the people of Metz Baking Company.

 

1987

Metz/Mckennan Federal Credit Union is formed through the merge of Midwest Partners and Mckennan Hospital Employee Federal Credit Unions.

2001

Metz/Mckennan changes its name back to Midwest Partners Federal Credit Union due to expanding membership and to better reflect key sponsors.

2009

Sioux Falls Bell shortens its name and broadens membership opportunities to Minnehaha and Lincoln Counties as Bell Federal Credit Union.

2011

This one is kind of a big deal. It’s where all three histories start a new one altogether. Midwest Partners and Bell combine in a new partnership. This came through approval by the National Credit Union Administration and a membership vote by the people of Midwest Partners Federal Credit Union. The past names were out, and let’s be honest, they were quite a mouthful. In reflection of where we came from and where we will go with our members, we became Voyage Federal Credit Union.

It’s a refreshingly uncomplicated name for the simple, straightforward banking service we offer to our members in their unique journeys through life.
