In 1924, a group of postal employees met in the basement of the downtown Knoxville Post Office. This visionary group recognized the importance of the credit union movement and became the first members/owners of the Knoxville Post Office Credit Union.
As charter members, they organized the credit union using the basic concept of a cooperative, non-profit financial institution. Member-owned and guided by a member-elected, volunteer Board of Directors, their purpose was to provide members with quality financial services. The credit union promoted the importance of savings and provided loans at affordable rates of interest.
In Fall of 2013, the credit union rebranded to TNConnect Credit Union. This name change best described their long-term goal of connection with their membership. Membership now includes anyone who lives, works, worships, or goes to school in Blount, Sevier or Knox counties.
Today, as Tennessee’s oldest existing credit union, TNConnect is proud of its strong, stable heritage and tradition of quality service.
