DCUC hosts Third Annual Hawaii Sub-council Luncheon
WASHINGTON, DC (March 27, 2023) — On Wednesday, March 22, DCUC hosted its third annual Hawaii Sub-council luncheon at the Pacific Club in Honolulu, Hawaii. First formed in 2020, this tight-knit group of credit union leaders gathered to reconfirm their dedication in serving the unique needs of servicemembers and veterans across the Hawaiian Islands.
DCUC visited with several of its member credit unions while in the “Aloha state” to include Aloha Pacific FCU, Hickam FCU, Pearl Hawaii FCU, Hawaiian Financial FCU, HOCU, Ko’olau FCU, and Schofield FCU. Hawaii is home to more than 100,000 military personnel, veterans, dependents, and DoD personnel from all branches of the U.S. armed forces.
“Every single one of these credit unions are fully committed to strengthening their impact and exemplifying the credit union difference,” shared Ron Aoki, DCUC Board Secretary and Schofield FCU President/CEO.
Issues discussed included advocacy, trajectory of emerging concerns and issues, and continuing to lay the groundwork for DCUC’s third active sub-council. Much like its other sub-councils in the Mid-West and Overseas, this Sub-Council addresses issues that are unique to serving the military and veteran community in this region.
“This year’s luncheon was another great opportunity to meet with our members face to face and discuss the important role credit unions have within the communities they serve,” said Anthony Hernandez, DCUC President/CEO. “We always look forward to hosting these gatherings so we can continue to stay abreast our members’ evolving needs when serving our military and Veterans on the Hawaiian Islands.”
