CUNA is now America's Credit Unions.
A stronger voice to advance the credit union industry.
Now is the time for credit union leaders to join their respective Council for 2024.
Councils are the national professional societies run for and by credit union executives. With nearly 9,000 members from 1,500 credit unions across eight distinct areas of expertise, Councils members connect with peers focused on similar aspects of credit union management.
No one understands the challenges credit union professionals face like their peers, which is why Councils are run by and for credit union professionals to help credit unions advance, truly realizing the credit union moto of “people helping people”.
“If you want to be a strategic leader in your organization, you need to be surrounded with people that will help you think at a higher and more strategic level.”, says Buddy Bennet, Chief Operating Officer, Cyprus Federal Credit Union, and Councils Chair.
“The Council membership benefits are vast,” Bennett said, “including annual conferences, expert virtual roundtables and detailed white papers, all designed to help credit union professionals excel.”
“I’ve been a Council member for 12 years; my favorite benefit is networking. The people that you meet, get to talk to, and brainstorm with just makes for an amazing experience. I’m able to consult with professionals across the country who are looking at things differently. It really opens your mind and helps you to become a better professional and to look beyond just where you're at in your organization.”
The Councils have grown to support eight credit union disciplines:
Geographic and demographic diversity means Councils members have lots of other people to turn to for ideas, advice and answers.
Councils provide resources, information, networking and career development to credit union leaders. Through council leadership and volunteer committees, more than 400 credit union professionals define the needs and direct the focus of Councils.
From annual conferences and expert virtual roundtables to detailed white papers and networking opportunities, members get access to unrivaled industry resources and professional development.
