What your peers have to say about Association membership:
"We must be involved with our political leaders to get their ear, and to gain their support. When it comes to advocacy, there is definitely strength in numbers—and the Association coordinates and strengthens our efforts. When we make our Hill visits in Albany and Washington, our legislators often tell us how well-represented we are by our Association. They commit resources and expertise to the political and legislative process that we simply don't have available on our own."
"Without the Association, compliance would be a much larger challenge for our credit union. Because we do not have a full-time compliance specialist on staff, it is imperative that we have easy access to a reliable source of guidance on both federal and state laws and regulations. The Association's experts help clarify and interpret complex issues, and they provide tools like CU Policy Pro, InfoSight and FYIs to help reduce the time we spend on compliance. As a result, we're able to spend more time developing and delivering the services our members need and want."
"Without the Association's education and training, I would not be where I am today—and our credit union would not have the knowledge and training that are crucial to our daily operations. The trainings are affordable, and they cover everything from compliance to human resources to legal issues. We are a small credit union and wear many hats, so the help and advice we receive from the Association is essential."

"When I attend the Association's outreach workshops, I always gain new ideas to take back to my credit union. In addition to learning how to reach key markets, I'm able to network with my peers and discuss important issues and opportunities. And because of the Association's outreach partnerships, our credit union can tap into great industry expertise and resources that we couldn't access otherwise. Without the Association, our outreach efforts would be very limited. With them, we're able to make an exciting impact."

"When questions arose about our exemption from the special additional mortgage recording tax, we needed answers quickly. The Association's prompt response and clear guidance made our dues worth every single cent ever paid!"
