DOVER, Del. (11/22/13)-- < As host of the National Credit Union Administration's Region II Fall meeting at the Dover Downs Hotel & Casino this week, the Delaware Credit Union League (DCUL) took a unique approach to spreading the credit union message: Harness racing.
Monday's 14th race at Dover Downs, with a purse of $6,000, was titled, "Credit Unions--Unite For Good" in the evening's program, under sponsorship of the DCUL.
As the race took place, meeting attendees dined at the Winner's Circle Restaurant overlooking the racetrack.
"As the trotters raced around the track, the tote board lit up with our message," Jane Bailey, DCUL executive vice president, told News Now.
At Tuesday's meeting, executives from the region's credit union leagues, including Delaware, New Jersey, Virginia, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland/DC, Pennsylvania and California, met with NCUA Region II Director Jane Walters and her team to discuss credit union issues and NCUA hot topics.
Among the topics discussed were small credit union issues; new regulations; examination changes & trends; member business lending; credit union service organizations; foundations; enterprise risk management; supplemental capital; due diligence; proposed diversity standards and charitable accounts.
NCUA Region II's staff and state credit union associations meet twice a year to share information and address challenges in the region.
The next meeting will be held in West Virginia in June.
