In 1971, a group of local miners and truck drivers founded Clutha Employees Credit Union. Created to provide financial services and products to local employees of the Clutha coal mines in Camden, the credit union expanded to serve the needs of the community in 1978 when it became Macarthur Credit Union.

Born from the Macarthur community to serve the needs of the Macarthur and Wollondilly communities, Macarthur Credit Union became The Mac 38 years later. With four local branches at Camden, Narellan, Picton and Tahmoor, The Mac continues to exist for the benefit of its members and the local community.
