About The League

Operational challenges can be daunting


Our united League/CUNA system offers expansive resources and consulting expertise on virtually every topic your credit union needs to function and grow. The knowledge that our collaborative system has amassed over decades grows with each credit union we assist to save your credit union time, money and needless risk. You accomplish more with greater confidence.


Your League:


  • Analyzes credit unions’ financial statements. League consultants identify ways your credit union can reduce costs, free up cash, increase income, target areas for loan growth, improve asset/liability management and more. 


  • Helps credit unions prepare for exams & communicates regularly with the Office of Credit Unions. Through regular dialog, participating in meetings of the Credit Union Review Board, and an "open door" relationship, The League improves credit unions’ overall interaction & experience with examiners. For example, regulators expressed confidence in credit unions’ collaboration with The League as part of the Compliance Specialist Program, a fee-based service that helps credit unions expedite compliance workload.


  • Provides insights and strategic analyses. League consultants help credit unions prepare budgets and budget forecasts including a balance sheet, analyze the cost and impact of adding new services, prepare for board meetings, complete planning sessions and simply navigate everyday challenges via hundreds of phone calls and in-person visits annually. The Small Credit Union Initiative—which offers participating credit unions assistance valued at $10,000—guides participants through a prescribed plan for growth.


  • Completes the required 990 tax form filing for two-thirds of Wisconsin credit unions. 



  • Boosts non-interest income through the fee-based products & services made available to credit unions through the W.C.U.L. Services Corp.




  • Provides research & statistics to guide credit unions’ decision-making. CUNA’s economic team tracks the federal funds rate, interprets what it means for credit unions and projects economic trends. CUNA’s researchers analyze market data and member loyalty data. All of this is crucial information for daily operations and strategic planning.



  • Interprets complex issues. Weekly email updates from the CUNA CEO cover the most critical administrative, economic, political and system issues. Inside Exchange videos bring insiders’ perspectives to timely issues and explain complexities in simple language. In-depth articles in Credit Union Magazine & daily News Now updates keep you on top of key issues.



  • Boosts your bottom line. CUNA Strategic Services’ fee-based products & services save credit unions millions of dollars annually while improving member relationships.
