    A Note from Chris

    It was great to see so many passionate credit union professionals at the Wisconsin State GAC last month – what a fantastic turnout, and thanks to The League for hosting such an important event. I encourage everyone to consider attending CUNA’s GAC in March to promote all the wonderful things credit unions do for their members and communities. 

    I also encourage you to attend our upcoming Credit Union Town Hall events, co-hosted by The League and Corporate Central, and held at various credit union offices across the state of Wisconsin. The purpose of these Town Halls is to provide credit unions with strategic updates from The League, Reach Business Lenders, Corporate Central, and our Family of CUSOs. Mark your calendars for the following sessions:

    • Thursday, March 28 in Appleton, WI
    • Thursday, July 18 in Onalaska, WI
    • Thursday, October 24 in Madison, WI

    Thank you,

    Chris's Signature
