Members Advantage Community Credit Union became our name on January 1, 2006. Five credit unions have come together to make us who we are today:

Windsor-Orange County Credit Union was founded in January 1953 and offered membership to employees of the towns and schools located in Windsor and Orange counties of Vermont.
Caswell Credit Union was founded in 1947 and was originally established to serve employees of the Burlington Public School District. Over time it expanded to offer membership to employees of all the colleges located in Chittenden County.

What is a credit union?
Credit unions are full-service not-for-profit financial cooperatives that are owned and operated by their members. A credit union is a group of people (identified as members) formed around a common bond such as employment, geographic area, or a specific interest. Typically, the “common bond” is what makes a person eligible for membership within a credit union. Credit unions are formed for the purpose of offering higher quality services and products, as well as superior pricing, to their field of membership.
Volunteers are a large part of what makes credit unions successful. Member-owners volunteer time to serve on the board and committees in order to help make important decisions about the operations of their credit union.
Credit unions operate under the philosophy of “not for charity, not for profit, but for service.”
