Merger Steps

Board ApprovalRegulatory ApprovalMember VoteMerger Completion

Dear Riegelwood Member,

Earlier this year, the Riegelwood Board of Directors sent a letter detailing a proposed partnership with REV Federal Credit Union. As part of this communication, members were provided with a ballot and asked to vote YES. I’m pleased to announce that the votes have been counted, and were overwhelmingly in favor of merging with REV.

On March 19, 2021, the Board of Directors held a Town Hall meeting at the Riegelwood branch location alongside REV President & CEO, Jason Lee. During the meeting, additional details were shared regarding the transition of member data to REV Federal Credit Union. Beginning this week, the Riegelwood membership will receive a letter from REV detailing next steps. The merger website will also transition into a resource center with additional information to assist members through the process. As we begin the transition, I encourage you to continue reaching out to Riegelwood employees for account assistance until the partnership is finalized.

Craig Gore

Chairman of the Board
