The African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) was created to increase the strength of the global credit union community.  We are a non-profit organization of African-American professionals and volunteers in the credit union industry.


"To increase diversity within the credit union community through advocacy and professional development."

AACUC Statement on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) recognizes the differences and distinctions of each individual, group, or organization that are represented in society and within the credit union movement.  In alignment with the AACUC’s history and goals, we define diversity in our mission to express the inclusion, advocacy, and support of African-Americans throughout the credit union community and at large. Notwithstanding, the AACUC welcomes the membership of all individuals, groups and organizations in furtherance of its mission to strengthen the global credit union movement.
