Berger, at AC, urges credit unions to play offense on issues

first_imgThe importance of credit unions playing offense, rather than defense, in today’s challenging regulatory and legislative climate was underscored Wednesday in remarks by NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger before attendees of the association’s 48th Annual Conference in Montreal.“NAFCU is on the front lines pushing to make sure credit unions’ voices are heard every day,” Berger said during Wednesday’s conference general session. He noted NAFCU’s key focus – advocacy, education and compliance assistance – and highlighted some of NAFCU’s recent strategic efforts, including the association’s push for the “NCUA Budget Transparency Act” and bipartisan legislation to require public hearings on NCUA’s annual budget. He also emphasized NAFCU’s ongoing challenge to the agency’s unnecessary risk-based capital proposal.In other remarks, Berger focused on the efforts of several credit unions across the country to engage their members and strengthen their communities.The NAFCU president discussed one credit union’s introduction of cashless kiosks and another’s introduction of enhanced mobile security features such as facial recognition biometrics – and he said credit unions are making a difference whether they are large or small. “Credit unions know that you don’t have to be big to make a difference. You don’t have to be big to have a big effect on the world around you – your community, the economy, and future generations,” he said. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
