CUNA’s operating margin was $2.2 million in 2010, exceeding the $1 million average of the previous six years. CUNA’s assets total $25.8 million, of which 69.8% is in cash and investments. Working capital is $10.8 million and net assets totaled $11.6 million at the end of 2010. For 2011, CUNA is budgeting $51.5 million in revenues and $50 million in expenses for an operating margin of $1.5 million.
