New union membership? New Union Initiation Fee? No problem!

Initiation fees and union dues can be early hurdles in the launching of a creative career, but we won't let that slow you down.

A Union Initiation Loan from First Entertainment Credit Union is a fast and easy way to get the funds you need to cover initiation and union membership fees for the union or guild that represents you. We offer low rates with quick and local decision-making, and if you set up direct payments to your union or guild, the APR* will be 1% lower than our standard personal loan (as low as 6.9% APR). We're a name the industry can trust.
