Two credit unions announce core conversions.
New York credit union commits to Maine league's Episys service bureau.
One year after converting to a bank charter, HarborOne is not as profitable as hoped.
The $573M California credit union switching to Symitar's Epsys core system from Fiserv's Acumen.
It's tempting to attempt to predict how many credit unions might try to jump to a bank charter in 2013. But that is hard to say. It's easier to observe some trends that came to the fore in 2012 and are likely to continue next year.

Final tally: 4,136 for, 13,819 against changing to a bank.
Bank conversion rejected, dissident members now polling on Facebook about possible board recall effort.
Seventy-seven percent of voting members cast ballots to remain a credit union.
Argument is over whether the $1.6 billion Technology Credit Union should be forced to share member contact information with conversion opponents.
