While the Minnesota Credit Union Network works hard to keep credit unions informed about the work of MnCUN and the Credit Union National Association through newsletters, emails, phone calls, and in person meetings, on a quarterly basis we publish Membership@Work to give credit unions a snapshot of the activities, efforts and results of the state and national associations. 

A digital version of the 2nd Quarter 2016 Membership@Work is available online. Member credit unions will also receive a printed version in the mail.

Through membership with the Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), credit unions provide employees with access to a myriad of resources related to the industry.

  • Meet with MnCUN’s executive team

  • Learn more about MnCUN’s strategic plan, objectives and activities
  • Meet and network with credit union employees from across the state
