Developing and Retaining Community Leadership

Banks in particular, but other once-local businesses like auto dealerships and real estate brokers, are increasingly national, thus reducing their local community leadership roles. Credit unions can take up the slack and champion the local communities where the credit unions operate. Credit unions can do this not because they are small and local – some are even now national in scope or close to it – but because they have a tradition of help and service, because they can plan for the long-term, and because they can do the right thing for the right reasons.
