Chapter of the Maryland & District of Columbia Credit Union Association meeting. Hyland emphasized the importance of credit unions participating in the town hall meetings set up to glean information from credit unions for the Outreach Task Force that is considering the recommendations of NCUA’s Member Service Assessment Pilot Program and the Government Accountability Office report. “I welcome all input from credit unions and others which will help the Task Force achieve its objectives,” she said. “I will be holding a series of town hall meetings which will engage credit unions across the nation to work together with the task force.”
