Verian announced today that Members 1st Federal Credit Union, based in Mechanicsburg, PA, has won the Verian Innovator Award in the category of “Time to Value.” The award recognizes accomplishments in streamlined processes, outstanding project teams, and highly involved executive sponsors, resulting in accelerated time to value in improving procurement within their organization.

About Members 1st Federal Credit Union
Members 1st Federal Credit Union is a member-owned full service financial institution located in Southcentral Pennsylvania. In 1950, we opened our doors with a desk and small counter outside the personnel office at the Naval Supply Depot in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. We officially adopted the name of DAFCU (Defense Activities Federal Credit Union) in 1972 and opened our first branch office at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle that same year.

Our name changed to Members 1st in 1994 to reflect our growing field of membership. Today, we have 60 full-service branches including 7 in-school branches. Our 250,000+ members reflect the changing landscape of our geographical footprint as owners of the Credit Union. Being member-owned means we don't have to pay out big dividends to stockholders. Since 1950, our members have been an integral part of who we are, and that remains so today. Learn more at
