“The expansion of access to NCUA Express and the creation of NCUA Dispatch will greatly improve NCUA communications,” said NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz. “The use of electronic technology reduces unnecessary expenditures and moves us toward greener operations. I encourage all stakeholders to sign up electronically for customized updates from NCUA about the issues that matter to them.”
NCUA Express is a voluntary electronic notification system that allows subscribers to receive email or RSS feed announcements anytime something gets posted to the NCUA website. NCUA Express subscribers can now customize and manage their announcement list to receive specific types of notifications. With the changes announced today, anyone interested in credit union issues may register to receive updates about NCUA’s activities.

NCUA Dispatch, a new email notification service, will electronically blast notices to credit unions’ and state regulators’ official email accounts. NCUA Dispatch will eventually replace most paper mailings, improving NCUA’s ability to communicate quickly and easily in a cost effective and green manner. NCUA Dispatch will be used for both routine and emergency notifications to the credit union industry. There is no need to sign up for the NCUA Dispatch service, as it will go to the intended audience as necessary. Credit unions should update the Information System and Technology section of their credit union profile with NCUA to ensure their organizational email is properly listed.
