About Credit Union National Association

Championing the credit union movement

We're Credit Union National Association, or CUNA. We stand for America's credit unions and fiercely advocate for all of them. We help build careers and professional networks. We champion the credit union story at every turn and help credit unions better serve their more than 137 million. 

Members of CUNA and NAFCU have voted in favor of approving the merger to form America’s Credit Unions. The new organization will be legally formed January 1, 2024, and we’ll be spending the next year aligning products and services so our members, and our industry, can thrive. 

The CUNA-League system is the most credible trade association in Washington across all industries.

Our power of association

The combined power of a national association, state leagues, member credit unions and 130 million members form an unequaled network looking out for credit unions’ best interests. We are stronger—and better—together.

We work with the Leagues on important initiatives like these:

  • Removing barriers on the federal, state, and local level and fight regulatory burden
  • Answering compliance questions and provide professional training and resources
  • Advancing a positive credit union message
  • Providing training and resources for credit union leaders, staff and volunteers 
  • Joining forces to defeat state-level, anti-credit union initiatives

The former House Budget Committee chairman is a big reason why credit unions exert such influence on financial regulations.
