Patrick and JimAs the 10th anniversary SCUCE drew to a close Friday, attendees had an opportunity to reflect on outstanding speakers and informational breakouts, some of which were standing room only. At the morning General Session and Awards Ceremony, Jim Nussle addressed conference-goers on the importance of being on the front lines of advocating for the credit union movement, citing the efforts of Mary Ott Wood, president/CEO of Florida West Coast Credit Union and a board member of the LSCU. Mary has met with both the President and Vice President of the U.S. to share the importance of credit unions in communities throughout the nation.

Nussle encouraged credit union professionals to tell their stories and build advocacy to move the needle for the credit union movement. He also cautioned that as the number of credit unions decreases, challenges will become greater. The answer to that dilemma is to “use cooperative super powers” to be sure the credit union message is heard.

After urging attendees to protect and grow the model, protect and grow the market, and protect and grow the heart of the movement, Nussle and LSCU President/CEO Patrick La Pine engaged in on-stage dialogue about the credit union industry.
