Georgia United Credit Union celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2008. Beginning in 1958 as the DeKalb County Teachers Federal Credit Union, we've flourished with each passing year.

Five Decades of History, Over Fifty Years of Service

On March 27, 1958, founding member Vernon Carne encouraged six other DeKalb County school teachers to join him in pledging $5 each to form the Credit Union and apply for a charter with the National Credit Union Administration, which was granted on April 8 of that same year.

Founding members were:

  • Lois Ann Flaum
