A Membership Like No Other: Community, Cause & Cash with CUs

Matt Stratford July 13, 2022

Since 2020, credit unions generated an estimated $35 billion in savings for members and nonmembers and continued to open branches in communities across the country even during the height of the pandemic.

Transformative change is happening in communities across the country and credit unions are at the forefront of the impact. This session will dig into the myths perpetuated about credit unions, the reality of the work done by these institutions, and what makes them unique.

Credit union leaders will share stories directly from their communities to illustrate the clear and measurable impact they are making in low-income areas and communities of color.
