In today’s legislative and economic climate, the credit union industry is facing myriad unknowns. The recent passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, with the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, looms large on our horizon, and many of the implications remain to be defined.

In addition, we are facing two significant assessments from the NCUA.

Both will have a significant impact on credit unions’ bottom lines, and NAFCU continues to work diligently with the NCUA to minimize the impact of these two assessments on credit unions.
