The entire MnCUN staff would like to thank each member for supporting the credit union system. We truly value the important work you do every day for your members, which inspires us to advocate on your behalf to make that job easier. We are also humbled by the kind words we have recently received from several members about the value of being a member of the Minnesota Credit Union Network.
“Associated Healthcare Credit Union belongs to the MN Credit Union Network because they provide many products and services specifically aligned for credit unions. They are our voice in advocacy at a local and national level. They also provide critical updates within the credit union movement, industry information and trends, education and operational resources important to our business. It is important to have an organization that supports and works on our behalf, provides expertise in areas we are not specialized in, and allows us the time needed to oversee our credit union. In some areas, you are our life-line!”
Theresa Malone, President
Associated Healthcare Credit Union
“At Ideal Credit Union, we see great value in the Minnesota Credit Union Network being our first responder at the Minnesota Capitol and in Washington DC partnered with CUNA. We rely on them to ensure our tax status is protected, the regulatory landscape is favorable for all credit unions to operate in, and the State and Federal chartering systems remain intact to give credit unions choice on how to best serve their members. When necessary, the Network mobilizes credit unions to work with legislators to ensure our message is heard, and the value we bring our membership is recognized.”
Brian Sherrick, CEO
Ideal Credit Union
“During the pandemic, the value of the Minnesota Credit Union Network became even more clear to me. They were able to organize credit unions from around the state to meet, sometimes daily, and discuss events affecting us all. This collaboration with other credit unions would not have been possible without the leadership of the Network, and was invaluable to me as a smaller CU. It allowed me to get help from others in and to navigate those challenges much more successfully than we could have on our own.
Nicholas Mathiowetz, CEO
NorthRidge Community Credit Union
“The Network takes a lead role for the important work of promoting and advocating on behalf of Minnesota credit unions. Our credit union values the hard work of the trade association on the regulatory and legislative efforts toward building strong relationships with regulators and elected officials. While we are engaged in the process, their supported efforts promote the growth of the industry and help our credit union focus on serving our members. The Network team is a highly passionate and knowledgeable group of promoters in advancing the credit union movement, philosophy, and purpose. From advocacy, education, resources, and facilitating collaboration, the Network helps credit unions join together from across the state to advance our mutual success.”
Jay Gostonczik, CEO
SouthPoint Financial Credit Union
Thank you all for your continued support of the Network and the credit union system. Together we are stronger!
