The Michigan Credit Union League board of directors unanimously approved a resolution last month to state its opposition to the proposed preliminary ideas under consideration by CUNA's System Structure and Governance Task Force.

Those preliminary ideas would change the trade association's structure, dues and governance to improve advocacy, increase accountability and offer some league choice.

"We think those are all ideas that are, quite frankly, an affront to state rights and our resolution says that," Dave Adams, president/CEO of the Michigan Credit Union League, said in an interview with CU Times. "We believe that all politics is local and credit union governance is most effective when it is done locally. And so, our resolution is basically pushing back on the recommendations and says to CUNA that we don't want any central authority encroaching on our states' rights when it has to do with branding and state level dues."
