BOSTON — In his first address as NAFCU’s incoming new president/CEO, Dan Berger said he plans to take the trade group’s education and training programs “to the next level.”
Current President/CEO Fred Becker retires effective July 31 after more than 13 years in NAFCU’s corner office.
Berger said in his Thursday afternoon speech that the trade group will invest in new technology, including a learning management system that will provide members with more and better online education and training.
NAFCU will also upgrade its in-house webcast studio to provide high-definition broadcasting, Berger said.
He also stressed that NAFCU will continue to manage its budget in a frugal, cost- effective manner and will continue to serve as an industry watchdog on the NCUA’s budget.
The lobbyist said he will continue to serve as NAFCU’s chief advocate when working with the NCUA, CFPB, lawmakers in Congress and the White House. That will include pressing issues like regulatory relief and the preservation of the credit union tax exemption, Berger added.
American consumers not only want credit unions, they need them, he said.
“And if we remain true to our mission, of helping working men and women become financially strong, it will remain a great time to be a credit union,” Berger said.
NAFCU’s Annual Convention continues through Friday at the Hynes Convention Center.
