Originally known as Calare Credit Union, First Choice Credit Union was formed in 1970 by staff from Canobolas, Boree and Molong Shires (now Cabonne Shire Council) and Orange City Council. Over the years the bond has been extended to include all residents of New South Wales and First Choice Credit Union now has over 4000 members.
A Credit Union is a financial co-operative owned and operated by a group of people who agree to assist each other by saving together and then lending these savings to one another at a reasonable rate of interest. Credit Unions are not-for-profit organisations, run by elected members who form a board of directors. This means that essentially a Credit Union is run by members for members.
