Credit Unions Re-opening: Valuable Resources from LCUL's Virtual Rountable Now Available
As credit unions begin to shift their planning to re-opening, LCUL wanted to remind you of the updated resources now available on our website.

Last Friday, we hosted virtual rountable focused on re-opening with a wealth of valuable information shared from industry experts. We've uploaded the the video archive, notes from the call, and KRP's PowerPoint presentation for you to refer to. This information, which includes security, employee policies and more, is extremely beneficial for credit unions of all sizes.

On the League's COVID resource page, you will also find a section for re-opening resources that include best practices, sample messaging to staff/members, and more.
LCUL Joins Fellow State Leagues to Support Credit Unions During Pandemic
Credit unions have been supported during the pandemic by both collective and individual work of state leagues and associations across the country, American Association of Credit Union Leagues (AACUL) Executive Director Brad Miller wrote.

In a story he wrote for CUInsight, Miller comments, "This type of powerful action by leagues is happening nationwide and exemplifies the cooperative nature of our industry. It's what we do together that sets us apart and I'm extremely proud to say the leadership and work of credit union leagues across the country have shown we are truly stronger together, particularly when members need us most."

Miller highlighted a wide range of AACUL and League efforts during the pandemic, including:
  • Launch of COVID-19 resource centers
  • League presidents and other leaders appearing on local television, radio, or newspapers talking about the work credit unions are doing in response to the pandemic
  • Organizing virtual roundtables to share best practices, experiences, and other information
  • State credit union foundations working to support their communities
  • Coordinating calls and webinars with local, state and federal regulators, agencies, and lawmakers
  • Working with regulators and other officials to receive guidance, clarification, and authorization related to the Paycheck Protection Program
