OMNI Community Credit Union awarded a “Give Back” grant to a local shelter organization, S.A.F.E Place, which helps thousands of domestic abuse victims and their children.
The $5,000 grant helps the shelter provide services to victims at no cost.
“S.A.F.E. Place is an organization that is invaluable,” says Ted Parsons, CEO of OMNI Community Credit Union, Battle Creek, Mich. “Helping domestic violence victims by giving them the peace of mind that they are safe and don’t have to worry about money at such a difficult time is vital. We are proud to be given the opportunity to help these families.”
For credit unions, the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act of 2000 means information required to be made available can be delivered electronically, as long as the credit union complies with its requirements.
While the DOD has affirmed the Military Lending Act’s effective date for credit card accounts of Oct. 3, CUNA is engaged with legislators to build support for efforts to exempt credit unions from the rule.
There's still time to register for Tuesday's free Member Activation Program webinar for MAP credit unions and those who want to learn more about MAP, which will include an update on CUNA’s Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation.
