As a publication that has as its main focus providing news of interest and value to credit unions, it shouldn’t be surprising that Credit Union Times strives to be first when it comes to reporting all breaking news. To be able to do that, our editorial team has established an unparalleled number of sources at all levels both inside and outside of the credit union industry. These knowledgeable sources regularly provide tips and exclusives. That’s a key reason why Credit Union Times is first with far more hot news stories and carries far more exclusives than any other credit union publication. Although they would never admit it, some CU publications actually find out about important credit union news events by seeing them here first. Some have even been known to massage our stories a bit and run them as their own. As regular readers are aware, every piece in Credit Union Times is original. The only writing that is not done by our own editorial staff and correspondents are clearly marked opinion pieces, an occasional guest editorial, or letters to the editor. We never reprint from other publications. Nor do we carry by-lined stories originally written for other periodicals such as a banking industry publication. Paid subscribers have a right to expect an editorial product comprised of stories that are completely original, frequently exclusive, always objective, timely, and unbiased, and one that is written entirely by writers who know and understand credit unions. If there’s news about credit unions, readers can count on seeing it here first. -
