Credit unions benefit through unity and cooperation with the LSCU

The LSCU hopes that credit unions have seen over the past year how hard the League has been working to make the products and services available to member credit unions in Alabama and Florida second to none. To achieve the highest level of collective strength, the LSCU needs a high affiliation rate. One collective, strong voice for credit unions in Alabama and Florida is very powerful.


Secure First Credit Union in Alabama and TMH Federal Credit Union in Florida are being recognized for being the first credit unions to submit their dues payments for 2011.


Over the past 18 months, the League has been focused on providing its members best-in-class services and resources, extensive educational opportunities, and more member-related initiatives. Examples include:

  • The LSCU’s interactive Web site -
  • Meetings with Alabama and Florida lawmakers and NCUA officials concerning the issues facing member credit unions
  • Convenient, affordable and relevant education sessions, visit the Education calendar
  • Creation of the LSCU Image Campaign, which will be implemented and spread across both states for increased credit union visibility
  • Extensive national media coverage through articles in industry and local publications, including CU Journal, CU Times, and CUNA NewsNow

This month will be a busy time for credit unions in Alabama and Florida. The League is hosting its final three town hall meetings with CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney (see story below). The CUNA GAC is coming up Feb. 27 - Mar. 3, where member credit unions will make lobby visits to all of the federal lawmakers in Alabama and Florida, as well as hear from key lawmakers during the conference. State GACs will also be coming up March 30-31 in Montgomery and April 13-14 in Tallahassee.

The League hopes that your credit union is seeing that the LSCU is working harder than ever for member credit unions. The League appreciates all of the credit unions that have re-affiliated and see that through unity and cooperation, credit unions can achieve so much more. Dues are due to the LSCU by March 1. If you have any questions about affiliation, contact LSCU VP, Cooperative Initiatives Laura Vann at 866.231.0545 ext. 2181.
