Atlanta‐based Georgia’s Own Credit Union announced Feb. 24 that its board unanimously approved a resolution to pursue a merger with Augusta’s Health Center Credit Union, which is a department of Augusta University.

News of the potential merger was first shared at HCCU’s annual meeting Feb. 14, and HCCU’s board of directors has also approved a merger resolution.

“In many ways, this is the next chapter in a relationship that goes back years,” said HCCU President Stacy Tallent. “We have shared space with Georgia’s Own at our Columbia County branch for four years, and in that time, we have been able to see firsthand how their values align with ours, especially in terms of putting members first and in playing a positive role in the community.
