Last week while I was on site at the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association Annual Meeting a member of our reporting staff informed me that Mark Meyer, CEO of the Filene Research Institute, referred to Credit Union Times as the National Enquirer of credit unions during a session at Georgia Credit Union Affiliates Annual Meeting.

Before I get into that comment, I want to say to anyone who isn’t feeling the credit union spirit these days, the great cooperative beat of people helping people, go hang out with some Pennsylvania credit union leaders.

Seeing that spirit makes you feel good to be a part of credit unions. As always, the meeting was very well produced. A hilarious banker/CU Ebert & Roeper parody during the opening session set the right tone for the meeting–credit unions have to celebrate their differences from banks!
