News from the MnCUN Board of Directors

The Network’s Board of Directors represent the interests of credit unions all of sizes and from all parts of the state. The Board works together with MnCUN’s President & CEO to ensure that all member credit unions receive high-quality service and that the interests of Minnesota credit unions are promoted both at the state and national level. Last week, the Minnesota Credit Union Network Board of Directors held their quarterly meeting at the MnCUN office in St. Paul.


The following is an overview of issues addressed by the board:


  • Green Lending Initiatives: MnCUN and a group of credit unions have partnered with the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment Climate Smart Municipalities program to provide lending for clean energy programs, implement energy efficiency improvements in credit union branches and create a website to help consumers install residential solar panels.
  • Cooperative Health Insurance: the Network is currently investigating the possibility of creating a cooperative healthcare insurance opportunity for credit unions.
  • New committee members introduced: MnCUN committees are made up of credit union professionals who volunteer their time to serving the Minnesota credit union movement. Representing credit unions of all sizes and from all corners of the state, committee members help to further a variety of objectives from politics to international partnerships to cooperative advertising.
