THE 'tude

Credit unions have long been well-known for many things: stellar member service, a local business feel, a family atmosphere, and—being member owned—a greater level of attention to the needs of their members. They have consistently outperformed banks and other lenders in these areas.

As the credit union industry waits to see what direction the NCUA board will head now that the two new members have taken their oaths of office, I believe the recent swearing-in ceremonies of each provides a good insight on what to expect.
