CEDAR FALLS, Iowa–Forced by the state legislature to change its name, University of Northern Iowa Credit Union has unveiled its choice. The 64-year-old CU is changing its name to UNITE Credit Union, a play on the university’s abbreviation, UNI.

ONTARIO, Calif.–CU Direct said it has signed on with CUNA’s national awareness initiative, “Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union.” Although it did not provide a figure, CU Direct said it is providing financial support for the effort.

WASHINGTON–In remarks to CUNA’s GAC, Vice President Mike Pence moved back and forth on themes that wove support for the work credit unions do with remarks on other national issues, such as border security, the “Green New Deal” and red meat topics such as taxes and deregulation. 

WASHINGTON—Saying CUs are a critical part of the national financial infrastructure, Senator John Tester (D-MT) told CUNA’s GAC that Congress is continuing to work to reduce CU’s regulatory burden.
