Randi Marmer, associate vice president of community relations at TruMark Financial CU in Trevose, represented the credit union at the conference. She presented TruMark Financial’s history, membership, products and services. Marmer also highlighted the credit union’s community involvement and discussed its new branch in an underserved area of Philadelphia. The branch brought financial services to an area that had no financial institution for more than 60 years, said the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (Life is a Highway July 23). On Tuesday, the conference backed the credit unions’ position on dual chartering and withdrew resolutions that favored merchants’ interchange fee positions. Chris Johnson, Credit Union National Association (CUNA) vice president of governmental affairs; and Lynn Coard, CUNA director of state advocacy, were both in attendance.
