About CUNA Councils

A member-led professional development organization laser focused on the needs of credit union leaders

What are CUNA Councils?

No one understands the challenges you face like your credit union peers, which is why CUNA Councils are run by and for credit union professionals. CUNA Councils provide resources, information, networking and career development to credit union leaders. Through council leadership and volunteer committees, more than 400 credit union pros define the needs and direct the focus of CUNA Councils.

An individual membership organization

Councils include more than 7,300 individuals across the United States from credit unions large and small. Geographic and demographic diversity means council members have lots of other people to turn to for ideas, advice and answers. See if you’re eligible to join.

Targeted to credit union management

Councils support credit union CEOs and professionals within eight focus areas:

Each Council hosts an annual national conference and provides discipline-specific resources. That means you’ll find a community of professionals with common interests who speak the same lingo and take on similar goals, all ready and willing to share expertise and experiences.

Executive focused

Most CUNA Councils members are senior- or mid-management level in their credit unions. Membership is exclusively for paid credit union employees—no vendors, no credit union board members. While those groups play their own important role, CUNA Councils are a place where credit union executives can freely and openly share in a tightly focused community of peers.

Member led

CUNA Councils are led by the CUNA Councils Executive Committee. Each individual council also has an executive committee and several committees made up of credit union professionals who care about the success of their peers, their credit unions and the industry as a whole.
