Option 1 Credit Union's new name, Adventure Credit Union, became effective June 6, 2016. Since 1936 we have been helping people with their dreams, their banking, and their money. At Adventure, have a passion for improving the banking experience. Somewhere along the line, banking based on individuality gave way to bigger and less personal. In every sense it became a commodity – a bland version provided by our competitors rather than a true financial solution. Here, things are different. At Adventure, we offer a higher value, locally blended with technology, convenience and personal service. It is based on solving members’ financial problems rather than just selling them a product off the shelf. It is looking at the way we do business from the member’s point of view, embracing new delivery channels to enhance the member experience and providing employees the tools to make decisions more quickly. We call this unique way of conducting business … Michigan Craft Banking
