NEW: ACUC: CUs Need To Take Action To Secure Future, Cheney says
NEW YORK (7/1/13 UPDATED: 12:30 p.m. ET)--The time has come for credit unions and their members nationwide to take action to protect credit unions, reduce regulatory burdens and prepare for the future, Bill Cheney, president/CEO of the Credit Union National Association, told attendees this morning in his opening remarks at the 2013 America's Credit Union Conference (ACUC).

The ACUC started Sunday and runs through Wednesday in New York City.

"Credit unions have done a tremendous job responding to and recovering from the financial crisis," Cheney said.

More than 700,000 net new members have joined credit unions in the first three months of this year, he noted.

Three key initiatives are underway to help credit unions thrive in the future: Unite For Good, Don't Tax My Credit Union and Plan To Win, Cheney told 1,200 conference attendees.

The "Don't Tax My Credit Union" national campaign has taken credit unions from defending the tax exemption to advocating for it, Cheney said.

With help from the credit union industry, millions of Americans will support credit unions, flock to them and make them successful in the future, Cheney concluded.
