Del Norte Credit Union is a State of New Mexico authorized neighborhood credit union. It was originally granted chartered status by New Mexico in 1954 as Los Alamos Scientific Lab Credit Union, offering 54 members with $1,160.00 in total assets. The credit union was developed because the people of City of Los Alamos were in the need of the services of a financial institution; LASLCU as it turns out was the first financial institution in city.
The credit union's area that covers its allowed customer based according to traditional credit union member rules has actually made several changes over the years. Back in the late 50's the organization's name was changed to Los Alamos Employees Credit Union. At that time the credit union membership totaled 2,717. Nicely enough at that time it employed its very first 40 hour per week branch manager. Starting in the late 1970's the field of permitted credit union members was expanded to include all persons living or working in Los Alamos County. By now the total member count was 16,825. Member share accounts came to be government guaranteed by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The credit union came to be an area charter in the early 1980's which allowed the organization to offer expanded financial economic solutions and services to people in the bordering neighborhoods.
In 1998, Santa Fe Federal Employees Federal Credit Union combined with Los Alamos Credit Union.
During the late 1990's the credit union's name was formally transformed to the area appropriate name Del Norte Credit Union.
