MADISON, Wis. (6/24/14)--Two CUNA councils recently reached membership milestones. The CUNA HR/TD Council has surpassed 800 members, while the CUNA Technology Council hit the 700-member mark.
"The councils are a vital source of information and collaboration for credit union leaders, providing an active community of peers, and resources specific to our responsibilities at the credit union," said Bob Davis, HR/TD council executive committee chair and senior vice president of human resources of VyStar CU, Jacksonville, Fla., with $5 billion in assets. "Our jobs are increasingly multi-faceted, and these resources are incredibly valuable for anyone managing HR, training, or development programs and strategies--members recognize how unique the HR/TD Council is to our industry"
Added Belinda Caillouet, Technology Council executive committee chair and chief operating officer/chief information officer at Spokane Teachers CU, Spokane, Wash., with $1.9 billion in assets: "The Technology Council's continued growth signifies how much our membership values being part of a peer-led, industry-focused and discipline-focused organization. Considering technology is becoming an even greater challenge, I can't imagine being in the credit union industry in a leadership capacity without being a CUNA Technology Council member."
Earlier this year, the CUNA Lending Council reached the 1,200-member milestone (News Now May 5).
