SAS Initiatives Account

The LSCU board of directors has approved funding for the SAS Credit Union Initiatives Account Program, available to all affiliated credit unions $50 million in assets or less. The LSCU has created an account in your credit union’s name in the amount of $500, to use toward the purchase of any LSCU, LEVERAGE, or a CUNA product and/or service including:

LSCU Strategic Planning Sessions
LEVERAGE Products (LSCU Service Corp.)

When LSCU invoices your credit union for events/services used, your credit union should note on the invoice that it is to be paid out of your LSCU SAS Initiatives Account. The LSCU’s accounting staff will keep track of the expenditures from your account.

The SAS Initiatives Fund was approved based on the LSCU’s 2019 budget and will be re-evaluated each year as part of our budget process. Unused funds in your account cannot be rolled over or transferred to other credit unions. This money must be used by Dec. 31, 2019 and cannot be accessed until your credit union’s 2019 LSCU dues have been paid. Credit unions who receive a dues waiver are not eligible for the SAS Initiatives Account program.
