Our new logo and trade name, Air Academy Credit Union, comes as part of a comprehensive brand refresh that has been over a year in the making.
At the beginning of 2022, we surveyed members, employees, and non-members in our local market, as well as conducted interviews with employees, board members, and credit union leadership to better understand our brand and what people value most about our credit union. We also conducted research in our markets to better understand how our name and brand were understood by non-members. The insights gained during this process helped shaped decisions about our new trade name, logo, and refreshed branding.
Even though we look different and have a new name, we are still a federally chartered credit union, insured by the National Credit Union Administration. We are still the same credit union you have grown to love over the years. We remain the same credit union that has been committed to you for 67 years.
As we implement the new brand across the organization, you will continue seeing both our old and new branding intermingled. Please be assured, this will not affect you or how we meet your banking needs. This process will not affect your account numbers, member information, account access, online banking access, or how you transact and conduct business with us.
On May 2, we launched our new website. Next, we will refresh our online and mobile banking platform with our updated branding.
In early June, online and mobile banking will get an updated color scheme, logo, and new icon in the app stores. Although the platform will have a new aesthetic, the features, and functionality will not change.
More importantly, your online banking login and password will remain the same!
