The Area Community Credit Union has a rich heritage in the Greater Grand Forks area. We started as a Federally Charted Credit Union in 1958. We converted to a State Charted in December, 1964 with approximately $52,000 in assets. Initially, we were a Credit Union solely for the Grand Forks Public School employees. Over the years we have steadily grown along with the community.
On July 1, 1994 with $3.5 million in assets, we moved into our present building at 2800 South Washington Street. The Grand Forks Herald Credit Union merged with ACCU on April first, 1997 and we became a Community Chartered Credit Union, welcoming anyone (including all family members) living or working within a fifty mile radius of Grand Forks to become a member and to utilize the services of ACCU. Today we have approximately $20 million in assets, serving over 2,500 customers.
