NAFCU publishes FAQ on ADA to help CUs targeted by lawsuits

NAFCU published a new FAQ document to help association members and nonmembers with concerns about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and website accessibility. The document explains why credit unions are being targeted with legal action and what NAFCU is doing to help, among other useful information.

Credit unions can download the FAQ from a message sent by NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger yesterday or by clicking here.
