CU System
CU advocates sought for Carolinas council program
RALEIGH, N.C. (1/13/14)--As the North Carolina and South Carolina leagues merged, so did their council programs.
 
CUaware, based in Raleigh, N.C., and South Carolina's CU Forward are expanding the geographic footprint and meeting schedule for credit unions in those states.
 
"Our plan is to add four regional councils in South Carolina that will hold regular educational meetings, as well as networking and community events," said CUaware co-founder Brandon McAdams, director of business transformation at Coastal FCU, Raleigh (In the Loop Jan. 10).
 
To that point, both the leadership and regional councils are seeking credit union professionals to volunteer, and the deadline to apply is Friday. The four new regional councils are SC Upstate, Midlands, Pee Dee and Low Country. In addition, CUaware has five openings on its nine-member leadership council.
 
"Credit union volunteers in each regional council will coordinate these meetings and events in order to enhance the level of grassroots cooperation throughout the Carolinas," McAdams said. "The end result will be that more credit union staff will appreciate and understand what makes credit unions and cooperatives so special."
 
Former CU Forward ambassador Will Crosswell said it was a great first step, even as CU Forward comes to a close." I truly believe that joining forces with CUaware has the potential to open up more exciting opportunities for credit union professionals in South Carolina," said Crosswell, business development officer at Palmetto First FCU, Florence, S.C.
 
North Carolina's councils in the Piedmont Triad and Triangle regions will continue to build upon past success, and CUaware plans to expand further in North Carolina.
