“The ACU has been serving the UAHuntsville campus for over 30 years!  It is a great pleasure to get to know the faculty, staff, and students and be here to assist with their financial needs. UAHuntsville has been a huge part of Alabama Credit Union’s success,” said June Landrum,Alabama Credit Union Area Branch Manager.

During the past year, existing members have referred a record number of new ACU members to the organization. Existing members have expanded their use of the credit union’s services including loans, and certificates of deposit.

The ACU’s other North Alabama branches are located in south Huntsville, Decatur and Cullman. A new branch will open soon in Madison on Paramount Drive.

The first branch of the ACU opened in Tuscaloosa in 1970. The credit union opened on the UAHuntsville campus in 1978. The ACU’s first location on campus was a small office in Morton Hall.
