  • Economies of scale can be achieved through credit union mergers. Well run credit union's are consistently competitive with commercial banks. A merger with a bank is like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Sheldon Greene, Greene & Allison San Francisco

  • Very Interesting, but I don't think this article should be coming from creditunions.com, whoever wrote this should be writing for a bank.com!

  • I know Alan and he is raising some very good points on what the NCUA is trying to do with smaller credit unions But merging with a bank is out of the questions-changing your charter to a mutual savings bank might be more appealing to some boards
