Formerly known as the Aberdeen Proving Ground Federal Credit Union, APG Federal Credit Union was established in 1938 by a small group of Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG) employees. (APG is the U.S. Army's oldest active proving ground, established in October 1917, six months after the U.S. entered World War I.) The Credit Union’s first "home" was a single cash drawer in a small APG office. Through a charter change and subsequent FOM expansion, APGFCU has grown to be Maryland’s fifth largest credit union, with nearly 127,000 members and assets in excess of $1.3 billion.
APGFCU also has the distinction of being one of the few credit unions that has an indoor arena bearing its name: APG Federal Credit Union Arena at Harford Community College in Bel Air, Maryland.
