Dynamic group of credit union chairmen to celebrate 40th anniversary

DEL MAR, CA (September 15, 2016) — Forty years ago a small group of credit union chairmen first came together to exchange ideas and information. From that first successful gathering, the National Association of Credit Union Chairmen (then Presidents) was born.

From October 5-8, more than 100 board leaders will meet in historic Philadelphia to share ideas and information, rededicate themselves to the association’s core values and celebrate the 40th anniversary of this prestigious group’s first gathering.

The unique meeting format of the Chairmen’s Roundtable Forum consists of multiple groups of volunteer board leaders sitting at roundtables discussing pre-determined topics. A hallmark of the meeting is that participants sit with a different group during each roundtable providing for maximum exposure to ideas from a variety of credit unions.

Another unusual feature of the gathering is that it is the chairmen who select the topics and write positions papers on those topics to share with each other. This year’s roundtable topics are: Governance Best Practices to Meet Regulatory and Compliance Challenges; Business Lending Policies that Position Your Credit Union for Success; Board Composition: How to Assess and Develop Your Best Board Yet; The Leadership Partnership: Board Chairman and CEO; and, Supervisory Committees: Ally or Antagonist. The sixth roundtable is an open forum of topics not already discussed.

Because of the high level of preparation and participation required for the roundtable discussions, NACUC has become a dynamic group of knowledgeable leaders who value education through quality networking.


The National Association of Credit Union Chairmen is the only national trade association dedicated to the development of credit union chairmen and future chairs through unique, high-level education and networking programs. Learn more about NACUC online at
