Harris: NAFCU to stay focused on federal issues

NAFCU is committed to keeping its focus on federal issues affecting credit unions and is seeking to codify that focus as the association’s members vote on full membership for federally-insured, state-chartered credit unions, NAFCU Chair Richard L. Harris said Thursday.

NAFCU’s board has unanimously voted to amend the association’s articles of incorporation to allow its state-chartered members to vote on all NAFCU matters and to run and serve on the association’s board. It also approved revising the articles to reinforce NAFCU’s focus on federal issues for all federally-insured members. The association’s voting members have until Sept. 9 to cast their vote on whether they accept these changes.

Harris said Thursday that NAFCU’s strength and purpose have always rested on the association’s focus on credit union issues at the federal level, and he said association President and CEO Dan Berger and his team will continue to work daily with that focus in mind.
