As the event’s lead sponsor, the Credit Unions of Rhode Island brought the consumer awareness campaign BetterValues. Better Banking. to thousands of attendees at the Credit Union High School Basketball Championships this past weekend.
Hosted by CUNA Technology Council and CUNA Operations, Sales and Service Council, the CUNA CIO/COO forum brings together credit union executives to explore the major trends and issues affecting their roles.
CUNA Management School will convene July 16-26 in Madison, Wis. Celebrating its 61st graduating class this year, the renowned professional development program provides attendees with the knowledge and experience required for credit union leadership and allows them to earn the Certified Credit Union Executive designation.
Today, the CUNA/league system formally launched the Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation, a coordinated advocacy effort to activate the entire credit union industry to attack excessive regulations as one, insuppressible voice, according to CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.
Backed by the advocacy efforts of state credit union leagues, legislation that will allow credit union members to save through incentive-based prize-linked saving accounts passed in several states in 2016.
CUNA and the Carolinas Credit Union League ensured last week that a report by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) containing a list of regulations the incoming administration could repeal did not include the NCUA’s recent member business lending rule.
The discussion boards on CUNA’s Compliance Community featured an interesting discussion last week: what is the difference between the terms “share draft” and “checking account”? The correct use is important since credit unions pay dividends, not interest.
