NAFCU’s 37th Annual Conference & Exhibition opened last week with a Native Canadian theme and addresses from NAFCU leadership, VanCity Savings CEO Dave Mowat, and others. During his remarks, NAFCU President/CEO Fred Becker spent a lot of time on the recent banker attacks. He noted that banks are important to the economy, but instead of spending their time attacking credit unions they should look at improving service and reducing fees. He offered his assistance in converting to a credit union to any bank that finds its regulatory environment so tough. “I would note that in the last 10 years, as credit unions have supposedly gobbled up the bankers’ share of the market, banks have increased their share of depository institution assets by 4.2%,” said Becker. Here’s a look at some of the opening session events. Credit Union Times will provide full coverage of the NAFCU conference in its July 28 issue.
