In response to an increasing demand for local networks that enable credit union professionals to work together, share knowledge, collaborate and develop solutions on local and national issues related to the financial inclusion of Hispanic and Latino communities, three credit union organizations launched the first-ever Juntos Avanzamos-National Association of Latino Credit Unions and Professionals (NLCUP) Regional Chapter in California, according to an announcement last week from the NLCUP, Inclusiv Network and California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues.

The Leagues, a liaison of Juntos Avanzamos, plan to work with other state credit union leagues that are also considering the launch of a Juntos Avanzamos-NLCUP Regional Chapter, the announcement said. The Leagues along with Inclusiv Network, which together designed the guiding framework for Juntos Avanzamos-NLCUP Regional Chapters, will also provide tools and resources for League member credit unions interested in engaging with the chapter, which is open to credit union professionals who share a commitment to the financial inclusion of Hispanic and Latino communities, and share the values of the Juntos Avanzamos and NLCUP framework.
