Our Mission

1st NRV FCU Mission Statement:


First NRV Federal Credit Union wants to be your primary financial institution.




Who We Are

1937 to Today:

Our credit union was chartered June 4, 1937 to serve the employees of the Radford Pipe Shop and was called Radford Pipe Shop Employees Federal Credit Union.

In 2017 we will be celebrating 80 years of service to our members. The year of 2017 also brought other major changes with it as well, and the biggest one being the success of our merger at the end of the 2016 year. 1st NRV merged with Carroll County Scools Employees Credit Union, and we are excited for the chance to serve our new members in the community of Hillsville.
