Growth of the Federal Em- ployes Credit Union was slow in the late years of the depression. | However, the credit union found | itself rendering a useful service! in making small payday loans end in stimulating thrift among its members, many of whom deposited only 25 cents or 50 cents a payday to their savings account. On June 17, 1947, a special membership approved amendments to the articles of incorporation to extend membership to include the Utah General Distribution Depot now the Defense Depot Ogden. It \va's also decided to change the credit union name to the Federal Employes Credit Union and to move the principal place Of business to Ogden. For the next few years, the credit union was operating during lunch hours from a small room in the administration building at DDO. Board meetings were being conducted in homes of the board members. ENTERS NEW ERA With the adoption in January, 1954, of amendments to increase membership to include other installations, most notably Hill Air Force Base, the credit union began a new era of growth and service. By April, 1954, interest was expressed by the U.S. Navalj Supply Depot officials in ex- ! tending credit union services to their employes. These services began in November, 1954. After considering the need for full time management, the board of directors gave Hay D. Hagsn a contract as treasurer and general manager, effective Dec. ], 1954. The Federal Employees Credit Union now had its first full-time office. The credit union membership numbered 1,558. This office remained open until Sept. 21, 1956, when the main office was moved to the Eccles building in downtown Ogden. WIDER MEMBERSHIP In May, 1957, another change was,approved when members of t he U.S. Armed Forces stationed in Utah were admitted to membership. As the credit union continued 2347 Grant in Ogden.
