How It All Started

The CommunityAmerica story began on March 19, 1940. We were founded by George Duvall, a pilot for TWA, who believed airline employees would appreciate a credit union dedicated to them. He was right, and TWA Club Credit Union, as we were originally known, took off. By the end of the first year, the credit union had more than $20,000 in assets and 644 members.

In 1992, as the Credit Union continued to grow, it changed its name to Members America Credit Union. Six years later, it joined forces with CommunityAmerica Credit Union. Finally, in 2007, CommunityAmerica merged with Midwest United Credit Union to become what we are today: the largest credit union in Kansas and the largest credit union in Missouri.
