There’s nothing worse than hearing a member utter these terrible six words.

I didn’t know you did that!

Well, we hear those words here at NAFCU sometimes as well. And it kills us as much as it kills you.

  2. Free board briefing/senior staff briefingIf you’re a NAFCU member, we’ll provide a free NAFCU Washington Update. We’ll do it in person when we can, but we’re also able to do virtual briefings. It is perfect for a board meeting.
  3. The Benchmark. Our quarterly member-only CU Performance Benchmark report measures your credit union’s financial performance against regional and asset class peers and monitors emerging trends in the industry. A good many of our members use the information as slides in their board meetings.
