Monday for Wisconsin’s Credit Union House on the state Capitol square in Madison, Wis. The house will serve as an advocacy command center and meeting space for Wisconsin credit unions and friends, according to the Wisconsin Credit Union League. “This facility is part of Wisconsin credit unions’ ongoing commitment to serving their 2.2 million members,” said Brett Thompson, president/CEO of the league. “It’s very appropriate that Credit Union House is located on Main Street, since we serve the interests of people who walk the main streets of communities throughout Wisconsin every day.” The facility, owned and operated by the league, has 2,500 square feet of meeting space and will have seven league employees. The Wisconsin league’s headquarters will remain in Pewaukee. “Credit Union House is here to help lawmakers and public officials recognize the role credit unions will continue to play in helping state residents and businesses manage their finances despite economic challenges,” Thompson added.

Wisconsin credit unions saved members $188 million in the fiscal year ending September 2008 by offering more competitive rates on savings and loans, and lower and fewer fees, the league said. Consumers in the state can rely on credit unions during difficult times because they’re willing to work with borrowers in a financial bind, Thompson said.
