Policies contain the rules, guidelines, and strategic goals that a credit union follows to govern its actions. They also provide direction to employees. Regulators do expect the credit union’s board to have policies covering all aspects of their operations (e.g., lending and deposit operations, employment issues, asset liability management, security, compliance).
Consulting Services & Strategic Planning
- The Consulting Department can assist credit unions in a variety of ways (e.g., succession planning, business continuity, crisis response/situations, and examination assistance). One of the more popular services is strategic planning session. Several different types of strategic planning programs are offered, depending on how much involvement you want to the League to have. The most popular program has a book for each participant filled with general and credit union-specific information. The League can lead the group during the planning session and report back to management afterward to finalize the strategic plans and action items.
- The League and CUNA award programs give us a way to recognize credit unions whose actions support and promote that philosophy and to honor the individuals who have provided outstanding service, guidance, and commitment to the credit union movement officials. Information on all League Awards Programs is here.
