Principles we Practice

First Community’s mission statement, "We build lasting partnerships through personalized financial solutions", is a clear and succinct portrayal of our fundamental purpose. It defines what we do and how we will achieve our vision, as a financial partner of choice in our communities, while adhering to our core values. Its execution, as seen in our financial results has brought us measurable success.

Our core values are:
  • Honesty, Integrity, & Trust
  • Member Financial Success & Satisfaction
  • Community Leadership & Education
  • Employee Fulfillment


At the heart of the credit union difference is our board of directors. Unlike banks, credit unions are governed by people just like you, who work everyday jobs and value the livelihood of their communities. What makes them special is their commitment to improving the financial wellness of others. The Board of Directors is elected by a vote of the membership and responsible to represent and protect the interests of the members. Collectively the Board of Directors sets the vision and governs the credit union’s overall activity.

The Supervisory Committee is appointed by the Board of Directors. They independently evaluate and review credit union operations and activities, ensuring that management implements sound internal controls and maintains practices and procedures that adhere to generally accepted accounting principles. In doing so, their primary responsibilities are:
  • Protection of member’s funds and interests
  • Safeguarding of credit union assets
  • Compliance with regulations, policies and procedures
  • Reliability and accuracy of financial records
