CUNA's 2015-2017 Strategic Plan lays out the trade's strategic priorities and performance indicators.

In a letter sent to credit union members obtained by CU Times, CUNA revealed its 2015-2017 Strategic Plan, in which CEO/president Jim Nussle detailed how he plans to fulfill the three clear mandates he received from the board when he signed his contract last September.
