America First Credit Union Continues Expansion into Southern Nevada Market

Las Vegas – June 12, 2019  America First Credit Union (AFCU) opened its 15th branch in Southern Nevada  and its 128th branch is the U.S.  at 1400 South Rainbow Boulevard, centered in the southwest part of the valley.

The full-service, 5,197-square-foot branch includes four teller stations; a four-lane drive-up, one lane being an ATM; a coin counter; three loan offices; and two remote expert offices. This branch will help serve more than 107,000 members of the credit union in Clark County. In addition to the South Rainbow location, AFCU has 14 other branches in Southern Nevada, including one in Mesquite. The credit union, with its headquarters’ location in Ogden, Utah, also plans to an additional location by the end of the year on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

The leading member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative financial institution branch will be managed by Geri Albores, who has over 24 years of experience in the financial sector. Albores, who was promoted to market manager in 2013, will have a staff of eight.

Since the branch officially opened on June 3, a steady stream of new and current members has visited to take part in the monthlong celebration, complete with raffle prize giveaways. One lucky Vegas Golden Knights (VGK) fan who visits the branch June 3 to June 29 will win a signed VGK jersey. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for Friday, June 21 at 8 a.m.

“We are delighted with the reception from community,” said Albores. “The Golden Knights grand prize drawing has definitely brought the fans. We are eager for the opportunity to serve new clients and offer a place where members can not only solve any financial problems, but also get advice and learn valuable financial information. At America First Credit Union, we believe that informed members make for stronger communities.”

The new open-space offices provide for a more robust digital experience and open engagement.

The full-service branch will be open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The branch is closed on Sundays.



Proudly celebrating 80 years of servicing members and a long-standing history, America First has become one of the largest, most stable and most progressive credit unions in the country, and has remained a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative financial institution. Today, America First has 128 locations, and is the ninth largest credit union in assets in the United States with over $11.1 billion, and the sixth largest credit union in membership in America with more than 1,021,000 members.
