Small credit unions are renowned for banding together to help one another. CUNA Mutual Group tapped into that strength by convening a council of ten leaders of small and mid-sized credit unions across the country to share ideas and solutions. As part of the council’s meeting in October at the CUNA Mutual Group campus, the council conversed with CEO Jeff Post and other company leaders.
The meeting was "a reaffirmation of CUNA Mutual Group's commitment to small credit unions and the credit union industry" said Bob Eike, president of Century Credit Union in Missouri. He agrees with the direction CUNA Mutual Group is heading and says "the new products and innovation will help keep credit unions stay alive and stronger in the future. It's nice to have a strong partner we can depend on as we face today and tomorrow's challenges."
Senior Sales Vice President Mike Defnet joined Post regarding the importance of small credit unions. Additional topics included: economic trends impacting loan performance and consumer lending; the new TruStage™ direct to consumer brand that provides credit unions a means to help members anytime, anywhere from any device; and an update from Dave Colby, Chief Economist regarding the slow economic recovery.
