BIRMINGHAM, Ala. and TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (1/4/10)--The League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU), through its consolidation of the Florida and Alabama Credit Union Leagues, is debuting its new look, direction and mission. “We are excited to kick off 2010 with a new management structure, a user-friendly, interactive website, and an experienced staff ready to tackle the myriad of issues facing our credit unions,” said Patrick La Pine, president/CEO of LSCU. LSCU’s mission is “to ensure an operating environment through advocacy, leadership, and services that will enable credit unions to maximize their potential as unique financial institutions.” The league created a website so its member credit unions can keep up with and comment on the latest regulatory and compliance issues, register for and access educational conferences and webinars online, and find strategic product solutions to help members. The site will offer streaming video and newsfeeds. LSCU also will continue to use its expanded resources to lobby state and federal issues. LSCU’s advocacy has brought more than 110,000 new members to affiliated credit unions in 2009. The Florida and Alabama leagues combined into LSCU in 2008. They reorganized in December with offices in Tallahassee, Fla., and Birmingham, Ala. The management team has executives from both leagues.
