NCUA donates new laptops to small CUs
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (9/17/12)--New computers and computer training are on the way for 14 small credit unions, courtesy of the National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA) Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives.

The free laptops and training will be provided to:
  • Gloucester Municipal CU, Gloucester, Mass.;
  • Great Neck School Employees FCU, Great Neck, N.Y.;
  • McKeesport Congregational FCU, McKeesport, Pa.;
  • Millwrights/Pile Drivers of Pittsburgh FCU, Saltsburg, Pa.;
  • Monumental CU, Chicago, Ill.;
  • Noxen Community CU, Monroe Township, Pa.;
  • Northern States Power Employees FCU, Grand Forks, N.D.;
  • Plainfield (N.J.) CU;
  • Prince FCU, Brooklyn, N.Y.;
  • Saint Norbert's CU, Pittsburgh, Pa;
  • San Fernando Valley Japanese CU, Sylmar, Calif.;
  • St. Monica FCU, Gary, Ind.;
  • Williamsport Teachers CU, Williamsport, Pa.; and
  • Zion Hill Baptist Church FCU, Los Angeles, Calif.
All of these credit unions hold less than $10 million in assets, according to the NCUA.

The laptop donations are part of the agency's efforts to eliminate paper call report filings in 2013.

The new laptops will help these credit unions improve their member service, file their call reports electronically, and modernize other recordkeeping. They will also reduce their environmental footprints, the NCUA noted. NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said the agency is "constantly seeking opportunities to give small credit union managers the tools, training, support, and resources needed to improve efficiency and aid in the economic viability of their institutions."
