Indiana Gov. Mike Pence praised credit unions at the Indiana Credit Union League convention in late September.
Pence, a long-time supporter of credit unions, shared his appreciation for credit unions' role in Indiana's economic environment, said the league.
The Sept. 25-27 gathering, which featured a keynote motivational speech from Indiana University basketball coach Tom Crean, also served as a fundraiser for Samaritan's Feet--a charity that delivers new shoes to impoverished children in the U.S. and around the world.
"We were pleased to have more than 500 attendees at this year's 79th annual convention," said ICUL President John McKenzie. "They represented almost 90% of Indiana's 2.2 million members."
Next year's ICUL convention is scheduled to take place Oct. 15-17.
