Q. Who is bcu?

A. bcu is a highly successful credit union based in northern New South Wales and Queensland.

Originally created in the early 1970s, Bananacoast Community Credit Union (bcu) was formed by a small group of business owners — predominately banana farmers to provide a local, realistic banking alternative to the big banks.

bcu’s 21 branches stretch from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, to Brisbane, Coffs Harbour and to Port Macquarie in northern NSW.

bcu are a lot like us. They have loyal members who care about the heritage of their organisation and they share the same member-owned model, member first values & ethos and community focus.

Like P&N, bcu also has a clear appetite to grow so that they can improve the products and services they provide to their members.

bcu has a strong passion for the regions in which they operate and their members respect the commitment bcu has to helping the local communities to thrive.

bcu has proudly contributed to its local community for nearly 50 years, donating both time and money to organisations and initiatives that are important to bcu members including: 

  • Bill Ussher Scholarship: bcu is proud to invest in Australia’s future leaders through their Bill Ussher Scholarship in honour of the bcu founding Chairman. Each year up to ten students receive $2,000 to put towards their studies. 
  • bcu Coffs Tri + Scoot for Schools Cup: bcu has been the main sponsor of the Coffs Tri since its inception in 2013.
  • Macksville Ride Around the River: bcu is proud to support this cycling event through the regions that is held in memory of local legend Brian Cockbain.

Further information about the Merger will be provided in the Member Information Document (MID) which will be posted or emailed to all P&N members in the coming months ahead of a Special General Meeting (SGM). You are encouraged to read the MID before making a decision as to how to vote. The Directors of P&N Bank unanimously recommend that you vote in favour of the Merger to approve the transfer of business from bcu to P&N Bank.
