CA and NV CUs Embrace New Resource
California and Nevada credit unions have eagerly adopted the Credit Union National Association's ‘Unite for Good’ initiative, a strategic vision where "Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.”

To support ongoing efforts, CUNA has unveiled a new resource with suggested advocacy and service improvement steps credit unions can take to advance this shared vision.

CUNA suggests a variety of action steps, including legislative and grassroots mobilization, regulatory action, political/campaign involvement, and media interaction. Credit unions can also opt for a service excellence and standards initiative, support local financial literacy efforts, or send communications to their members seeking their support.

Each step aligns with the three key goals needed to achieve CUNA's ‘Unite for Good’ vision: removing barriers, creating awareness, and fostering service excellence.
