August 29, 2023

CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle, who will lead America’s Credit Unions should CUNA and NAFCU members approve the merger, sent a message to members after the vote opened Monday pledging that “America’s Credit Unions will serve you.”

“We will be strategic. We will be decisive. We will be cost and value conscious. We will listen and adapt to your needs. Most importantly, we will be responsive,” Nussle wrote.

The member vote on the merger will be open until 5 p.m. ET Nov. 1. Members were asked to whitelist the electronic ballot email; please check your inbox for these messages and reach out to CUNA at 800.356.9655 with questions.

Nussle stressed the importance of credit union feedback to make the potential new association successful and announced an upcoming series of virtual forums for credit unions to share their thoughts directly. Dates of the forums will be announced soon.

Nussle also reminded credit unions that additional details on the Transition Board of Directors, membership dues, and other FAQs can be found online.

“I truly believe that the creation of America’s Credit Unions is in the best interests of your institutions and members. I am grateful for the Board Members of both CUNA and NAFCU who had the courage to pursue this immense opportunity and lead our industry into the future,” Nussle said.
