In an era where navigating the legislative landscape has become increasingly complex for businesses, Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) Associate Business Membership program serves as a beacon of guidance and advocacy.
CUNA is pleased to welcome three new businesses that have recently become Associate Business members, further bolstering the program's impact on the industry – Aequilibrium Software, Constellation Digital Partners, Inc., and myCUmortgage.
Michelle Johnson, manager of CUNA Associate Business Membership, elaborates on the essence of becoming a member: "Joining the program isn't just about membership; it's about becoming a force for positive change in the credit union ecosystem. Through this partnership, our united voice ensures that credit union priorities are front and center in Washington."
Being an Associate Business member comes with advantages designed to supercharge market presence and reliability. Members enjoy discounted annual fees for CUNA events, complimentary digital subscriptions to Credit Union Magazine, and special pricing for advertising and exhibit spaces at the Governmental Affairs Conference.
Associate Business members are also granted exclusive access to CUNA's extensive educational and training materials, coupled with real-time updates on vital industry regulations and emerging trends.
"As members, these organizations are not just receiving perks; they're gaining a competitive advantage. Their deep engagement with the credit union world enables them to stay ahead of the curve," said Johnson.
myCUmortgage is a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) offering comprehensive products and services that empower partner credit unions to be great mortgage lenders.
“myCUmortgage stands with CUNA in the belief that the best resource to help Americans become homeowners is their trusted credit union. Since we began in 2001, our mortgage CUSO has assisted credit union partners in helping over 132,000 members with homeownership,” said Paul Sutor, interim president at myCUmortgage.

Aequilibrium is a digital consulting and implementation services company headquartered in Vancouver, BC. Their expertise lies in creating customizable digital banking platforms and immersive learning in virtual realities.
“Research shows that 75% of consumers will switch financial institutions if they have a poor digital experience. By joining CUNA’s Associate Business Member Program, we continue our mission to enrich the lives of 100 million people with remarkable digital experiences for both the credit union and their members,” said Adrian Moise, CEO and founder of Aequilibrium.
"By committing to both CUNA's advocacy efforts and the larger credit union movement, these companies underscore the growing recognition that a unified and impactful voice is critical for advancing and protecting the credit union industry," said Johnson.
