How Do I Become a Member?

It’s easy to join Genie-Watt Credit Union! Any eligible person may become a member by completing an application form and making a minimum savings deposit of $5.00 in a share savings account.

SHARED OWNERSHIP – As a member of Genie-Watt Credit Union, you own “shares” in the credit union’s business. You take part in electing a Board of Directors, Credit Committee, and Supervisory Committee. And, you share in the success of the operation.

Because credit unions are NON-PROFIT organizations, all earnings are returned to members in the form of dividends, added services, and other benefits. 

STRONG COMMON BOND – Your Genie-Watt Credit Union is a financial cooperative that was chartered by the state Department of Banking and Financial Institutions in 1959. The field of membership includes all families of MDU Resources Group, Inc., its subsidiaries, families of employees, and Genie-Watt Credit Union employees. They are the people you work with, live with – friends who share your interest in making Genie-Watt Credit Union their strong, primary financial center.
