Yes, all of the Dakota West branches offer personal service to our members (and future members) and yes, all of our communities are nestled in western North Dakota, but if you zoom in, you’ll notice what makes each of our branches unique and special in each of our communities.
Grenora, one of the oldest branches in the Dakota West organization is the only financial institution within 30 miles of the community. Originally built around the Great Northern Railroad (GreNoRa), This community is as valuable to the region as Dakota West is to its northwestern members.
With a membership radius of fifty miles, Bowman’s community reaches beyond the edges of North Dakota. Unlike any other branch, our Bowman location serves members in Baker, Montana and Buffalo, South Dakota, and into Hettinger, North Dakota making it our only three-state location.
Serving our members of the MHA Nation at our New Town branch, our Member Service Representatives are learning traditional Hidatsa greetings to welcome elders who visit our branch on the Fort Berthold Reservation. We thank our members for the sense of family this shared communication brings to us.
Watford City is Dakota West’s home base, but it’s also the center of a county that includes a national park, two major rivers, two time zones, and blends both the history of agriculture and the modern advancements of the energy industry.
Located just twenty miles from Theodore Roosevelt Regional Airport, our New England branch plays a vital role for the smaller communities of Hettinger County. The constancy of a credit union benefits the residents in the less-populated regions of North Dakota, and for half a century, this location has served as a valuable resource.
Each summer our Washburn branch provides account support to number of seasonal residents who come from the west coast of the United States and even from South Africa who return each year to lend a hand to our agricultural community. We welcome back our summer members who are helping to continue the traditions of farming and honey production in our McLean County community.
It’s the small ways our Mohall branch impacts our northeast region. When the north winds blow, it certainly is a benefit to be the only financial institution in town with drive-through service so our members can remain warm and toasty in their vehicles. In the summer, it’s also on the way to Lake Metigoshe for travelers needing to take advantage of our shared branch services.
In existence since 1940, our Turtle Lake branch is just down the street from Rusty the Turtle, the namesake placed to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the town in eastern McLean County.
We invite you to explore any of our branches when you are travelling throughout the Dakota West region. You may meet new faces, but you’ll always receive the same quality service. See you here soon!
