She added that CUNA is a forming a working group under the auspices of the CUNA Examination and Supervision Subcommittee, chaired by Ohio League President Paul Mercer. "We want to work with all stakeholders on this endeavor, including credit unions, leagues, NCUA, and NASCUS to ensure credit unions are aware of the proper role and duties of the regulator as well as their own appropriate roles. The subcommittee set a goal to have strong and comprehensive report by early fall.
