CUNA Lending Council celebrates 1000 members
MADISON, Wis. (8/4/11)--The CUNA Lending Council has reached the milestone of 1,000 members, a result of several years of growth and members’ growing commitment to collectively refining the best practices of the credit union industry. The council is one of three CUNA Councils with membership in excess of 1,000. “Reaching this milestone is significant,” said Aaron Bresko, Lending Council executive committee chair and vice president of lending at BECU in Tukwila, Wash. “The councils provide credit union lenders 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 lending responsibilities at the credit union. Credit union lenders recognize how unique the Lending Council is in our industry.” Gayle Rust Gustafson, Lending Council membership committee chair and senior vice president-financial services at Rivermark Community CU, Beaverton, Ore., added, “What’s really significant about the 1,000 member milestone is that we’re helping more and more credit union lenders handle immediate issues, plan for future successes, and build more competitive lending programs.” The news follows CUNA Councils' announcement of surpassing 5,000 members across all six councils. As part of the collective 5,000-member celebration, credit union executives can join any of the six councils at a special rate through Aug. 31. Current members can help councils celebrate by submitting their story about what membership means to them. Anyone joining or submitting a story is entered in a drawing to win: a grand prize of a $5,000 Credit Union National Association education/training scholarship, a complementary registration to a council conference, a 2012 council membership, an Apple iPad, or a $100 Visa gift card. “The drawings are a fun way to celebrate the ongoing success of the councils,” said Gustafson. “The council leadership remains committed to making the benefits of membership relevant, timely and affordable.”
