Our History and Future
On January 14, 1954, 10 Leon County teachers applied to the Comptroller of the State of Florida for a Certificate of Organization to create the Leon County Teachers Credit Union with an initial investment of $5 each. Twelve days later, their application was approved. The first member of the credit union was Edna Tait (pictured below).
For many years, Ms. Lora Lewis (pictured below) served as Treasurer and ran the Credit Union out of her desk in her classroom at Leon High. Many of her records and change fund were kept in an old cigar box. She even opened for business on Saturdays from her kitchen!

Throughout our history, the outward, visible part of the Credit Union has changed, but the underlying principles remain the same – a not-for-profit, not-for-charity, financial institution providing related services to members at the lowest possible cost. From Leon County Teachers Credit Union to North Florida Education Credit Union to Envision Credit Union, members remain the owners of the Credit Union that operates for their mutual benefit.
Envision Credit Union will safeguard and manage effectively the assets entrusted to us by our member-owners; will improve the economic well-being of our member-owners by delivering convenient, personalized products and services of exceptional value; and will uphold the credit union philosophy of people helping people.
