Honored Leading World's Largest CU, Dawson Offers Navy as Resource for Other CUs, Hopes Trades Work Together
VIENNA, Va. -- Cutler Dawson, president/CEO of Navy Federal Credit Union, does not shy away from talking about the big issues of the day in credit union land.
He spoke candidly recently with Credit Union Times during an interview about issues ranging from trade association politics to conversions to membership growth. As a member of NAFCU's board, the head of the world's largest credit union said he absolutely sees the need for two separate national trade associations with one specifically catering to federal charters. However, Dawson pointed out, "We also belong to CUNA. We think both organizations do a good job of representing credit unions. And, we also think, they're most powerful when they work together. They're most powerful when they spend their energy working the issues affecting credit unions and not intra-trade organization issues."
