Help me find a credit union

I do most of my banking with a megabank but would like to open a second account at a credit union. Can you recommend one that will let me join?

I don't have a particular pressing reason for this, like needing a mortgage -- I just like the idea of supporting credit unions and want to try it out.
As far as I'm aware, there are none that I qualify for based on location or professional/govt affiliations. But I also know that many of them will let anyone join through a simple backdoor, like joining an affiliated charity or consumer group with a modest membership fee.
Can anyone here recommend a particular credit union that you've had good experiences with, which also has this kind of de facto open membership?
