Membership RelationsLSCU_Your-Trusted-Advocate

Trust and advocacy are two important words in the credit union industry. When blended together the words “Trusted Advocate” can convey a powerful message. For an organization to be a “Trusted Advocate,” it has to have earned your trust through a proven track record of success. Since the consolidation of the Alabama and Florida Leagues in 2010, the LSCU has worked hard to reinvent the League and demonstrate increased value of affiliation. The League significantly bolstered its advocacy function as well as compliance support and training. Educational offerings have been expanded to meet the changing needs of credit union officials. The development and support activities for small asset size credit unions and chapters are second to none. More than $1 million in dues rebates have been returned to credit unions over the past four years while holding the line on dues. The LSCU & Affiliates is Your Trusted Advocate each and every day.

Value of LSCU Affiliation

When the League and credit unions work together, the credit union movement has real strength. The LSCU is Your Trusted Advocate each and every day through advocacy, compliance, education, cooperative initiatives, and communications.
