The African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) is hosting a special conversation at 12 p.m. ET today with CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle – who will lead America’s Credit Unions should members of CUNA and NAFCU approve the proposed merger – and NAFCU President/CEO Dan Berger. Maurice Smith, former chair of AACUC, will moderate the conversation.
During the conversation, Nussle and Berger will discuss the industry’s evolution that led to the proposed merger, the member vote process, what to expect during the transition if the merger is approved, and efforts to ensure representation of all credit unions in the new organization.
The vote on the proposed merger opened Monday; member credit unions have until 5 p.m. Eastern Nov. 1 to submit their ballots to CUNA and NAFCU. Credit unions are encouraged to continue providing feedback and asking questions throughout the process and can do so online.
