A Brighter Tomorrow: Blue Federal Credit Union and Aventa Credit Union Plan to Unite

We are excited to welcome Aventa Credit Union into the Blue Family. This partnership is a great step forward for our members and organizations.

Exciting times are on the horizon for Blue Federal Credit Union and Aventa Credit Union members. In a landmark decision, both institutions have proudly announced their intent to merge. We are excited about expanding our footprint and welcoming Aventa Credit Union into the Blue family. This merger is not merely a business decision; it's an alliance of mutual values, dedication, and a deep-rooted commitment to member service. This partnership will strengthen Blue’s offerings and reaffirm our commitment to investing even more in the communities we serve. With a shared legacy of unwavering dedication and trust, this union amplifies Blue’s lifelong commitment to every one of our members.

The merger journey, of course, requires time and meticulous planning. It is expected to be completed in the first half of 2024 and will add six additional branches to the Blue network, offering members even better financial solutions, expanding community initiatives, and continuing the shared mission of putting members first. But before this union is formalized, essential milestones must be achieved. Key among them is the endorsement from the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the Aventa membership.

As the community and members anticipate the finalization of this merger, it's evident that the partnership of Blue Federal Credit Union and Aventa Credit Union will lead to unmatched member and community experiences and a future filled with endless possibilities.
