Our History


CME: A Foundation in Service

CME Federal Credit Union was established in 1935 by the City of Columbus Firefighters. A few years later, CME began serving employees of the City of Columbus Division of Police. CME then expanded to serve city, county and municipal employees within Franklin County. Today we serve Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Licking, Madison, Morrow, Pickaway and Union counties.
