We're off to the COBA Convention!
Our Archvist will be heading up to tropical Darwin this weekend to set up the Australian Credit Union Archives stall at the 2015 Customer Owned Banking Convention! The ACUA office will therefore be closed on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th September. We will reopen the week after.

One thousand images have now been scanned by the volunteer team working on our photography digitisation project. The ACUA collections include historic photographs of early Australian Credit Union Movement meetings, portraits of high profile members of the Movement and the credit union sector, as well as images recording branch premises and technology, staff members and industry conventions. Once the digitisation process has been completed, the images will be made available online, enabling wide-spread access to this fascinating historic resource.
