The principles and philosophies that guide credit unions are simply good business (and profitable, too). Understanding them and their application helps uniquely define the Credit Union Movement within the financial services marketplace, attracting consumers into becoming members, building member and community loyalty, and driving revenue to your credit union’s bottom line.

Explore how your credit union can put the Movement’s foundational concepts to work in everyday operations, helping further met members’ needs and solidifying the unique role of cooperatives in the financial services world at the League's Credit Union Philosophy Day, Oct. 10 in Columbus.
