About Us

Original SELCO branch

Tireless Personal Service

Our dedication and focus haven’t changed since we opened our doors in 1936, back when SELCO stood for School Employees of Lane County Oregon. Founded by a group of educators to support each other through tough times, SELCO now provides this same level of personal service to more than 143,000 members as one of the largest, oldest, and most trusted Oregon-based credit unions.

Investing in You and Your Communities

Everything we do is driven by the desire to improve our members' lives. This means that we return earnings to members in the form of fewer fees, less red tape, and better rates on savings accounts and loans. We also invest in innovative products and community programs to help you spend less time managing your finances and more time pursuing your vision of a good life.

Our Leaders

SELCO’s Senior Management Team (SMT) of five, including Bob Newcomb, President & CEO (pictured left), works with the Board of Directors to develop a road map for the credit union while ensuring the organization operates in a safe and sound manner—all for the benefit of our members as well as team members.

 I moved to Eugene two years ago, and my neighbor said great things about SELCO. Every person I have dealt with has been wonderful. It is so clear that when you hire folks you are looking for people who can be warm, friendly, bright, and honest.
