The Amaranth Credit Union is beginning talks about a merger with Access Credit Union. 

Amaranth expressed interest in forming the merger while valuing cooperative principles including investment in communities and keeping rural branches accessible and open.

Should the plan come to fruition, the plan is for Amaranth members to benefit from better technology and innovative solutions in an ever-increasing competitive environment. Currently, the board is preparing a recommendation to its members which will then see a vote take place in the fall.
