Leaders from the boards of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues thanked fellow colleagues in the movement for their unwavering support during another year in which credit unions displayed their unique “member owned” model to the world around them.

There’s been no shortage of opportunities and challenges across both states as 2017 transpired—from economic issues to disruptive ways of new thinking, as well legislative advocacy and regulatory awareness. Financial education also remains top-of-mind for many credit unions as they continually aspire to engage members and new consumers of all ages how to navigate life and prosper, and so does “fintech” banking innovations.

The majority of credit unions in California and Nevada have remained steadfast in their support of the Leagues and the ongoing mission to help the industry change its members’ lives.

“Over the past year we have joined together in unity and come together to serve our communities,” said Hank Barrett, outgoing chairman of the California League and CEO of Valley First CU, as he stood on stage with Nevada League Chairman and WestStar CU CEO Rick Schmidt. “It is through our collective efforts that we can continue on and succeed.”
