Council-only seminars also are planned for KCUA's 2012 Annual Meeting & Convention in April.

Councils are open to employees or volunteers of affiliated credit unions or their credit union service organizations. They are governed by three directors, and are supported by annual membership dues.

Additional councils are being considered, to be launched at a later date. The councils were formed to promote synergy among all Kansas credit unions as the local, primary source for uniting and energizing individuals and credit unions by sharing best practices, education and resources, said KCUA.
