History of the Credit UnionAudubon Federal Credit Union has been in business since 1956. The credit union was originally established as Owensboro City Employees Federal Credit Union by 10 each of Owensboro’s Firemen and Police officers in the back of the old Fire Station. We are still serving employees of the City of Owensboro, KY.
In 1984 the credit union chose to expand its’ field of membership. The credit union acquired several new employee groups over a 4 year period and therefore the membership voted to change its name to Audubon Federal Credit Union in 1988.
In April 2006, the National Credit Union Association approved Audubon Federal Credit Union to change its charter from a Select Employee Group to a community charter to serve the people of Daviess County, KY and authorized the officials to amend Section 5 of the charter to read as follows:
“The field of membership shall be limited to those having the following common bonds:
- Persons who live work, worship, or attend school in, and businesses and other legal entities located in Daviess County Kentucky;
- Members of record of the Audubon Federal Credit Union as of March 16, 2006;
- Spouses of persons who died while within the field of membership of the credit union; employees of this credit union; volunteers in the community; members of the immediate family or household; and organizations of such persons.”
We are proud to be a part of this cooperative spirit and invite you and your family to take advantage of our high quality financial products and services. Today, Audubon FCU serves over 2800 members in the community.
