MADISON, Wis. (8/16/12)--The CUNA Lending Council announced it has surpassed the milestone of 1,100 members, a result of several years of consistent growth and members' growing commitment to the credit union industry.
Lending is now among two CUNA councils with membership in excess of 1,100, and among three CUNA councils with membership in excess of 1,000.
"The continued growth in the council membership reflects the value we bring to each other and how the collaboration helps us improve the financial lives of our respective membership each day," said Aaron Bresko, lending council executive committee chair and senior vice president/chief lending officer at GTE Financial CU in Tampa, Fla.
Through Aug. 31, credit union executives can join the Lending Council or any of the other five CUNA councils and save $100 on membership dues. The six councils encompass a network of more than 5,400 credit union professionals.
