Culver praised the work credit unions do for Iowa communities and commended the on-going effort of credit unions to fully serve their members. Gronstal noted that credit unions are able to continue providing valuable financial service to their members, which is a testament of what makes Iowa’s credit unions so strong. Gronstal and Paulsen agreed that Iowa credit unions are an ideal model of the credit union movement’s cooperative spirit. Conference participants and state legislators were also introduced to “The Little Guy” who represents the Iowa men and women that credit unions serve.
