Doing what’s best for the credit union industry

NAFCU and CUNA made an exciting announcement this week – the intent to merge and form America’s Credit Unions. This decision was not made lightly. It was a collaborative process, with input from leaders and stakeholders of both organizations over the course of many months. Throughout the discussions, our North Star was: “What is best for credit unions?”

We strongly believe that transforming these two great organizations into one is what’s best for the credit union industry. Under the leadership of Jim Nussle, this organization will be laser focused on serving you. Jim is a passionate credit union champion and is dedicated to creating an impactful organization that will deliver results.

While our announcement was met overwhelmingly with positive reactions, we recognize that there are many questions yet to be answered. And some within the industry may not be fully supportive of the merger. Over the next several weeks, we will be meeting with as many members as we can to listen to your concerns and priorities, and learn how this new organization can best serve you.

Let me provide some insights into why America’s Credit Unions is best for our industry’s future.
