Witness history in the making at America’s Credit Union Museum’s grand opening ceremony for the CUNA Research Center

MANCHESTER, NH (April 10, 2018) — America’s Credit Union Museum is pleased to announce the grand opening ceremony for the CUNA Research Center and Ensweiler Research Library expansion at the museum.  The ceremony begins at 3:30 pm on June 27 with comments from Mike L’Ecuyer, president and CEO of Bellwether Community Credit Union and Chair of the Board of Directors for the museum and Jim Nussle, President/CEO of Credit Union National Association.

“We are excited to unveil the CUNA Research Center and Ensweiler Research Library at American’s Credit Union Museum,” said President/CEO Jim Nussle. “This is a historical moment for the credit union movement and we greatly appreciate the support, contributions and efforts throughout the Legacy Campaign. It’s great to see our heritage being shaped in a new way by making credit union information more accessible.”

This effort is the result of the museum’s Legacy Campaign, a three-year capital campaign with a goal of raising $3.3 million to create a new industry research center, expand exhibit space and provide renovations to the existing building. “We are grateful for all the partnerships that have allowed us tell the story of the history, heritage and values of credit unions, and the difference they make in the financial marketplace,” said Stephanie Smith, executive director of the museum.

The physical and electronic industry research center will make credit union history more accessible, while the additional exhibit space and upgraded conference facilities will enable credit union professionals, legislators and citizens to experience firsthand the unique role credit unions play in the marketplace.
