“Red River is a very progressive credit union with a strategic vision for growth and diversification that they felt would be well complemented with a community charter,” said Dennis Dollar, Principal Partner at Dollar Associates, following the NCUA action.  “They have demonstrated that, even with some significant changes in recent years, the NCUA field of membership rules can still work for many growth-oriented federal credit unions.  We were honored to partner with Red River Employees Federal Credit Union on this successful charter expansion project and are excited to see the options for taking their credit union to the next level of growth that this community charter will make available to them.”
