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. House Bill 482 and Senate Bill 440 would essentially make it possible for a bank to acquire a state chartered credit union while simultaneously decimating the equity that members have built up over the years. The Piedmont Chapter of Credit Unions is asking you, the members and employees of all credit unions in Southside Virginia, to stand with us in opposition to this bill.

Thoughts from the October 13, 2009 Chapter Meeting

There were three things that really caught my attention at last night's meeting.

The first was Norman's announcement that he would be stepping down as chapter president after his present term. The other two were things said by our speaker William Coleman. ...keep reading

Why I Think CU's Should Celebrate International Credit Union Day

With the growth, expansion and regulation of credit unions there is a tendency for us to act more and more like our counterparts in the banking industry. Credit unions must hold on to what makes them different. The credit union difference is so much more than just lower fees and great member service, it's a proclamation to the world of what credit unions stand for. 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
