Dakota Credit Union Association shows why ‘membership matters’

January 13, 2022

The Dakota Credit Union Association recapped a successful year with its latest impact report, titled “Membership Matters.” The report details how the Dakota Credit Union Association helped credit unions in North and South Dakota so they could continue serving their members.

“Great organizations can do remarkable things and solve complex problems together. The credit union movement is continually being disrupted, competition is increasing, member expectations are growing, and government policy is ever changing,” wrote Jeff Olson, president/CEO of the Dakota Credit Union Association. “The relevance of our movement is constantly being challenged. You need us and the association needs you. We can’t do it alone.”

Board Chair Jarrod Reisner, who is also the chief financial officer at Black Hill Federal Credit Union, said the more the association can do for credit unions, the more credit union can do for members.

“As an organization, our objective is simple: We’re here to help our members succeed and to be the best advocate for credit unions and their members. We do that by providing 360-degree advocacy leadership, regulatory support, education, and trusted business solutions and resources to our affiliates,” he wrote. “We focus on these priority pillars so that our credit unions can focus on serving their members.”

The report includes updates on Credit Union Awareness, professional development, advocacy, compliance, Financial Well-Being for All, and more.
