The SouthWest Family

In 1937, a federal credit union examiner recruited eleven men and organized a cooperative credit union in St. George, Utah to serve members in the community. Today, over 70 years later, SouthWest Community Credit Union serves the five-county area of Southwest Utah, plus Mesquite, Nevada, and Northwest Arizona as a division of Chartway Federal Credit Union, a full-service financial institution with over $1.9 billion in assets and over 200,000 members.

Our Story

More than 50 years from its founding, Chartway has grown into one of the largest credit unions in the country. And, with the integration of HeritageWest Credit UnionSouthWest Community Credit Union, and Utah Central Credit Union into the organization in 2010 and 2011, Chartway now proudly serves nearly 200,000 members and has assets of more than $2 billion.

Board of Directors

One of the key differences between a traditional bank and a credit union rests in the group of individuals who form our Board of Directors. These community leaders and business people are volunteers who are elected by you, SouthWest Community members, to represent your best interests with regard to SouthWest Community activities.
