Haynes Circle -- Smaller Credit Unions
History of Namesake

Learn where the Haynes Circle got its prestigious name.  



Some of the greatest successes every day, in every corner of Ohio, are delivered by smaller credit unions. And the League is committed to supporting smaller credit unions through programs, outreach, leadership opportunities, and more.

At the direction of a committee of your peers in 2011, the League created a single umbrella -- the Haynes Circle -- under which all things smaller-asset credit union ($35 million in assets or less) can easily be identified and accurately portrays the thriving community of small credit unions.

It’s like a club, named after recently-retired Faith Community United CU CEO Rita Haynes, tailored to your challenges and needs. When you see the Haynes Circle symbol, know that it represents collaboration, partnership, answers, and community.
