CUNA Councils celebrate membership milestones

MADISON, WI (August 22, 2016) — The CUNA CFO Council and Operations Sales & Service Council have reached new membership milestones: the CFO Council with more than 1,400 members and the Operation Sales & Service Council with more than 1,000 members. These milestones were reached as a result of several years of growth and a collective commitment to striving for excellence in the credit union industry.

Bryanna Tapley, Chair of the CFO Council Executive Committee and VP-Operations with Flint Area School ECU in Flint, MI remarked, “the CFO Council’s continued growth signifies the importance of a professional membership organization devoted to its value proposition of providing a national network for finance leaders where they can reach out to one another, grow professionally, and obtain education and resources that are specific to their role at the credit union. Members continue to recognize how unique the Councils are; here, fellow professionals care about the success of their peers and the credit union industry as a whole. I am proud to be a member of such an influential and growing professional organization that continues to create ways to add value for our membership.”

Greg Inman, Chair of the Operations Sales & Service Council Executive Committee and Chief Operations Officer at Neighbors Federal Credit Union in Baton Rouge, LA commented, “the growth of the Operations Sales and Service Council reflects the tremendous efforts of our Membership Committee led by Judy Kinney (SVP-Branch Delivery/Operations with LGE Community CU, Marietta, GA) as well as the focus of our entire Executive Committee to deepen our member engagement. It’s an honor to be a part of such a passionate group of credit union leaders whose desire is to serve others while strengthening our industry.”

Credit union finance/accounting and operations, sales, and service leaders who are not yet members may collaborate with peers by joining the Councils at The Operations Sales & Service Council’s 2016 National Conference will take place September 28 ‒ October 1 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, NV, and the 2017 CFO Council Conference will be held May 21-24, 2017 at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, FL.
