After a year in the works, the North Carolina Credit Union League will complete its relocation from Greensboro to Raleigh next week.
The league has been housed in leased space in Greensboro, its founding home for 73 years, but the need for legislative advocacy, “our bread and butter,” trumped tradition, said league officials.
Despite the relocation of the league, First Carolina Corporate will remain in Greensboro as well as Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, which serves both the North and South Carolina Leagues.
Though the relocation announcement was made in March 2010, the transition to the new home has been stretched out during the year to give employees more time to accommodate home sales during difficult economic conditions, said the league.
Greensboro, located in the central part of the state and 80 miles west of Raleigh, has been the league home since 1937 when the trade group’s primary function was to charter CUs.
