Field of membership includes members of the GettingAhead Association. According to the association's website, "membership is open to any individual who is genuinely committed to improving their own financial well-being." There's a $5 fee to join this association. Employees and students of several select groups can be immediately eligible to join the credit union without joining the association. Membership into the credit union requires a minimum $10 deposit into a savings account. There's a membership application online that must be printed and mailed in along with copies of two forms of ID.
Refer to my post from last week for more details about this credit union.
Branches are located just northwest of Atlanta, Georgia in the cities of Kennesaw, Marietta, Dallas and Woodstock.
Credit Union of Georgia has a 4-star rating (exellent) at BauerFinancial based on 6/30/08 data. Note, it doesn't have a rating at Bankrate. It's likely due to it changing its name and charter. It had been MACO Educators Federal Credit Union. It's federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 68571).
