The Most Dangerous Legislation I've Seen...

"This is the most dangerous piece of legislation I've seen in more than 30 years working in this industry." These were the words of Darrell Minniear, President of Martinsville DuPont Credit Union, as he spoke with the delegation from the Piedmont Chapter which made the trip to Richmond on January 28th.

What we stand for can be summed up in two words. Our Members. No other financial organization can truly say this, that their whole purpose in life is the financial well-being and success of their members. ...keep reading

Video Recap of the Legislative Roundtable

First of all I absolutely love my new MDCU Camo Cap!  The best gift from a CU host!  It was a great start to the meeting which in turn was one of the finest chapter events I've had the pleasure of taking part in.  Rather than a written recap I'll simply leave links to the video I took during the Legislative Roundtable.  They are embeded into this article.  Click read more to list all the clips... ...keep reading
