WASHINGTON — Despite a tumultuous year for lending in states like California, credit unions in the Golden State continue to have some of the most robust member business lending portfolios in the country.The $1.2 billion Evangelical Christian Credit Union ranked first in the country for total member business loans as of June 30 according to Callahan and Associates. The credit union experienced a nearly 19% growth spurt between June 1007 and June 2008 and was the only one to crack the double-digit billion dollar mark in Callahan’s top 50 ranking.Other California credit unions in the top 10 ranking were the $4.2 billion San Diego County CU and the $450 million Christian Community CU. Going a little further down the list were the $4.3 billion Kinecta FCU, the $2.7 billion Lockheed FCU and the $575 million Telesis Community CU, which all earned spots in the top 20 ranking.Meanwhile, several credit unions took hits to their portfolios, according to Callahan data.
