Musings from the CU Suite

NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

Amazing - 2020 is just around the corner. (When I was a kid, a date like 2020 seemed like science fiction.)

This is the time of year when many credit unions are looking round the corner to the next calendar year, and making plans. 

If you are a NAFCU member, how about a 20 minute NAFCU 101 webinar? We'll make sure you get the most out of your membership. 

And if you aren't a member, we invite you as well to see what NAFCU can do for you and your credit union.

Have a great weekend, everyone. Now, on to this week's reading pile.
