Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

My goal each week is to share stories that I think any credit union exec would find interesting and germane.  Please, please, please feel free to share any interesting stories that I didn't include. I'll be sure to include them next week.

As always, if you need anything, just reply to this email. I'll get it. It will be nice to hear from someone that isn't talking about my car's warranty.

Have a great weekend, and please enjoy these reads.
