CUNA CFO Council announces name change

June 19, 2018

CUNA Councils announced the name change of the CUNA CFO Council to the CUNA Finance Council. The new name more closely unifies the members and their professional backgrounds with the intent of the group. The change is effective immediately.

“As credit unions have evolved, and finance departments have expanded, the CFO Council membership has increasingly included both CFOs and a wide range of other finance professionals,” said Steve Arbaugh, chief financial offiers at SECU in Linthicum, Md., and chair of the council’s executive committee. “We felt that replacing ‘CFO’ with ‘Finance’ is more inclusive and better reflects the breadth and depth of our council’s membership.”

The CUNA Finance Council will continue to provide high quality resources to credit union CFOs, finance leaders and other finance professionals, including white papers, scholarships, access to networking opportunities and an annual council conference and CFO Forum.

More than 1,300 credit union finance professionals across the U.S. are members of the CUNA Finance Council.
