The Federal Credit Union September-October 2013 - (Page 48)

From the President’s desk Leading On Through Efficiency, Advocacy and Education By Dan Berger, NAFCU President and CEO I ’d like to take this opportunity to use my first TFCU column as president and CEO to tell you a little bit about how I plan to lead NAFCU forward. As I take over this position, I’m thankful for the team we already have in place. My colleagues are absolutely incredible. In addition, NAFCU is blessed to have a fantastic board of directors that is focused solely on what is in the best interest of our members and your association. NAFCU’s past and future successes are due to this combination of a strong board and a dedicated staff. Throughout your association, we keep our members at the forefront of our every decision — we are focused on helping our members not just survive, but thrive. At NAFCU, our members have and always will come first. Period. I’ve identified three top priorities to guide us as we go forward: the finance, marketing, management/leadership and technology areas. First, we will manage NAFCU in a frugal, cost-effective manner. NAFCU will continue to be financially prudent with your dues dollars. We are effective and efficient. We’re investing in technology, including a new state-of-the-art Learning Management System that will allow us to provide more and better online education and training. We want to make it easy and convenient for you to get the training you need, whether in person at a conference or through your computer or tablet. NAFCU is investing in your future. Second, we will maintain our award-winning advocacy and make sure the CFPB and legislators remember that credit unions didn’t cause the financial crisis.   Toward that end, we will continue to fight for regulatory relief, so that you can keep serving your members effectively. NAFCU will also continue to be the leader in protecting your tax exemption. And I will remain your chief advocate when presenting our agenda to NCUA, the CFPB and key lawmakers in Congress, Treasury and the White House.   Third, we’re going to take NAFCU to the next level when it comes to our education and training. Everyone knows we have the best compliance training around — and don’t worry, nothing will change in that regard. We will, however, increase our training options in I know many credit unions are still struggling, and we will be there to help them. But despite the ongoing challenges, it’s a great time to be a credit union. American consumers trust credit unions, and they need us. You were there for consumers during the financial crisis, and they know they can count on you to be there in its aftermath. I am confident that NAFCU’s members are ready to meet the challenges ahead. As always, feel free to pick up the phone and call me or anyone on our staff with your questions and concerns; I assure you that NAFCU will be with you every step of the way. We are focused on helping our members not just survive, but thrive. 48 The Federal CrediT Union September–OctOber 2013 http://www.nafcu.org/regrelief/ http://www.nafcu.org/cutaxexemptionissue/ http://www.nafcu.org/cutaxexemptionissue/
