MADISON, Wis. (5/5/14)--The CUNA Lending Council has reached the 1,200-member milestone and is now one of two CUNA Councils with membership in excess of 1,200 members.
"The Lending Council continues to grow not only because members appreciate the value of an organization devoted to learning and sharing with peers," said Bill Vogeney, council executive committee chair, "but because the lending business is becoming more and more challenging with every year."
"I can't imagine being in the credit union lending business in a leadership capacity without being a CUNA Lending Council member," said Vogeney, executive vice president/chief lending officer at $3.9 billion-asset Ent FCU, Colorado Springs, Colo.
The council's 2014 National Conference is set for Nov. 2-5 at the Hilton Bayfront in San Diego. Sessions will include a focus on consumer, mortgage and business lending topics as well as strategic and leadership issues.
With 1,265 members, the CUNA CFO Council also is at a membership milestone.
