The Credit Union Executives Society recently reached a membership milestone. It now serves more than 10,000 individual credit union members. And the organization noted that CUES membership has grown by 50% since 2009.
“The increase in our membership base demonstrates that although there are fewer credit unions in the industry, the movement continues to be vibrant,” said Fred Johnson, president/CEO of CUES. “And, the fact that this milestone was reached during our 50th anniversary makes it especially significant.”
In 2010, new memberships were introduced–including CUES NextGen individual membership. The addition of group memberships based on asset size has helped to make staff development affordable for credit unions of all sizes, the society said in a statement.
In 2011, the Center for Credit Union Board Excellence was introduced; CCUBE offers specialized online membership for credit union directors and executives, making online courses, educational videos, and learning plans available. Additionally, tier levels were added to the longtime CUES Supplier Membership in 2010, a membership which has been offered since 1985.
