  • Chip! I haven't seen you since the late 80's, when you were at Sierra Central CU with Callahan. I am glad to see that you are still touting the traditional CU solutions & reminding us that we are a part of a great industry. This is a great article. Our CU industry values, traditions, strength, & financial solutions are all founded on these cooperative charters. I would encourage all CU managers to share this article & mentor your employees in these historic & solid ideals. They have worked for many years & are founded with membership in mind. Let's not allow this to change. Thank you! Joyce

  • Chip, well stated, the cooperative philosphy and history of credit unions is something we should be extremely proud of. It is what truly makes us special. We have an excellent opportunity to come out of this economic downturn truly wearing the White Hats. Steve Ahlness, GMCU

  • Chip,

    As ususal, you hit the nail on the head. As another who is long in the tooth, I fear that credit union philosophy is very ill. The NCUA staff certainly don't get it; the state examiners don't either. There is a disturbing lack of appreciation for how different credit unions are, and their mission, and the economic crisis has buried those attributes deeper.
