CUNA Councils at 5500 membership milestone
MADISON, Wis. (9/11/12)--Membership in the six CUNA Councils has surpassed 5,500 members, the Credit Union National Association announced Monday.

"Reaching this milestone is significant," says Erin Mendez, Council Forum chair and

executive vice president/chief operating officer at SchoolsFirst FCU in Santa Ana, Calif. "The councils provide credit union executives with a unique and active community where they can reach out to one another, grow professionally, and obtain education and resources that are specific to their role at the credit union."

The CUNA Councils include six focused areas of credit union responsibility, including

Marketing & Business Development, Human Resources Training & Development, (CFO) chief financial officer, Lending, Technology, and Operations Sales & Service. At the councils, credit union executives tap into a network of senior and middle management peers to connect, learn, advise and advance the credit union, the council member's career, and the credit union movement.

Starting Monday, the councils will begin accepting memberships for 2013. Those who join on or after Monday will have an active membership for the remainder of 2012 and all of 2013 for one price.
