Growth involvement highlighted in 2007 CUNA annual
WASHINGTON (6/2/08)--The 2007 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Annual Report and audited financial statements now are available online. A printed version of the report will accompany each copy of the June edition of Credit Union Magazine Paramount objectives for CUNA during 2007 were growth and member involvement--most notably as part of CUNA's expanded financial literacy programs, said CUNA Chairman Tom Dorety, who also is president/CEO of Suncoast Schools FCU, Tampa, Fla. He details some of last year's challenges and accomplishments in CUNA's 2007 Annual Report. "Economic anxieties bred new political pressures. We were ready. We beefed up our political action programs to help Congress assess proposed legislative responses to the emergency. We joined with credit union colleagues, within and outside of CUNA, to assure absolute unity in coping with the stresses,” said Dorety. "We continued last year to convince Members of Congress that the pending CURIA--Credit Union Regulatory Improvements Act--legislation will help us better serve their people back home," he continued, noting that congressional sponsors rose to 143 during the year, from the previous year's 125.
