Filene CEO Meyer Looks at CU Successes and Stumbles
WASHINGTON—"We have done many things well, some less so," said Mark Meyer, CEO of Filene Research, in what was the closing general session talk at CUNA's GAC conference.
Before Meyer spoke, a parade of speakers, including Beltway luminaries such as Barney Frank and John Tester, told the GAC audience how they saw credit unions and Washington.
A different kind of message came from John Tester, a U.S. Senator from Montana and also a self-proclaimed big advocate of credit unions.
"Many rural communities would not be served by financial institutions were it not for credit unions," said Tester. "Credit unions understand rural America. And I am from rural America."
