The federation said it is planning a special celebration in 2009 to mark the CDCU Institute's 10th year in operation. Supporters sponsoring the institute include: National Credit Union Foundation; JP Morgan Chase; CUNA Mutual Group; Suncoast Schools FCU, Tampa, Fla.; Faith Community United CU, Cleveland, Ohio; and Northeast Community FCU, San Francisco. Many institute attendees also received financial support from the National Credit Union Administration.
