AACUC Hosts Small Credit Union Summit During 25th Annual AACUC Conference

SNELLVILLE, GA – In partnership with TruStage and Inclusiv, the African-American Credit Union Coalition (AACUC) hosted the second annual Small Credit Union Summit. This summit, sponsored by VisiFi and National Cooperative Bank, was designed exclusively for executives at small credit unions with less than $100M in assets for the purpose of leaving CEOs empowered to tackle strategic planning, future proofing their HR department and speaking their member’s language. 

This summit has garnered the attention of leading experts from within and outside the credit union industry to provide fundamental concepts and new ways of thinking to deliver impactful outcomes in the areas of technology, leadership, digital marketing, lending, human resources and more. The summit is also an opportunity for Inclusiv and the National Credit Union Administration to share invaluable resources specifically geared towards small credit unions including training, grants, loans, minority deposit institutions, chartering and field of membership expansion.

“The Small Credit Union Summit has now become a staple for our annual conference,” said Renée Sattiewhite, AACUC President/CEO. “I’m deeply moved how we as system partners come together to empower our small credit union leaders to succeed. We recognize the unique role that small credit unions play within our movement and within so many communities, and we are grateful for providing an avenue for them to develop, network and grow.”

Predicated on the concept of joining together to solve complex problems facing small credit unions, CEOs and their colleagues convened and left empowered to take the next steps.
