The next step in the process is approval of the merger by members of Aventa Credit Union. A special membership meeting will be held on Monday, February 26, 2024, at 3:00 pm to finalize the process. This meeting will be held at Aventa’s headquarters, located at 2734 Dublin Blvd., Colorado Springs, Colorado.

This alliance, rooted in shared values and a commitment to member service, is set to be finalized by April 2024.
