Laclede Community Credit Union is being absorbed into 1st MidAmerica Credit Union, after members of Laclede voted in favor of the merger earlier this week. The merger is expected to be complete by the end of May, with 1st MidAmerica Credit Union as the continuing credit union. All employees of Laclede will be able to keep their jobs with 1st MidAmerica.
