This name change, the fourth name change in our company’s history, marks a significant milestone in our credit union’s journey, providing an opportunity to reflect on everything that Alaska USA stands for and everything that we aspire to become as we move forward into an exciting future.
This new name is a better description of a membership that is distributed worldwide and more illustrative of our organizational commitment to accessibility anytime, anywhere in the world.
Since we were founded in 1948 as Alaskan Air Depot Federal Credit Union, our organization has expanded far beyond the confines of the Air Depot and the borders of Alaska. As your families grew, we grew. We now have members in all 50 states and all over the world. We have branches in Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Washington, and even on military bases in Italy. We’ve grown to become what Alaska always has been—larger than life. Global.
When we decided to change our name to Global Credit Union, we wanted to honor and recognize our deep Alaskan roots, because, after all, that is where our journey began. These roots are expressed in the new Global Credit Union design. The “A” in Global is a direct nod to the mountainous geography of the credit union's Alaska beginnings. The blue and gold colors are also a gesture to the colors on the Alaska state flag. And finally, the gold “summit” of the letter is an arrow, pointing to the future of our members’ financial well-being.
