Cornerstone CU League Is Now Official
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (7/1/13)--The merger of the Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas credit union leagues becomes official today. An affirmative vote from credit unions in all three states creates the largest credit union league in the nation, according to the league officials.

"These past several years of working together have proven productive and fruitful, which is a good indication of what's to come in this partnership," said Dwayne Ashcraft, former board chairman of the Arkansas Credit Union League and now board member of the Cornerstone Credit Union League (LoneStar Leaguer June 28).

Gina A. Wilson, former chair of the Credit Union Association of Oklahoma and a director for the new league echoed Ashcraft's sentiments.

"The power of collaboration is strong indeed," she said. "I'm confident in our future and look forward to the great things this organization is poised to do for our some 646 credit unions."

The league is based in Dallas, with satellite offices in Little Rock, Ark.; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Austin, Texas.

Longtime Texas Credit Union League President/ CEO Dick Ensweiler will serve as CEO of the Cornerstone league, with each satellite office having its own president.

"With the combined talent, knowledge and resources of our three states, we are enthusiastic about enhancing member services for our credit unions so they can better serve their members," Ensweiler said.
