Attend a chapter meeting to eat, network, learn…enjoy!

Have you been to a credit union chapter meeting?


Now’s your chance, because every September marks the start of a new chapter meeting season. Chapter meetings are a place for credit union people to network, learn, play a role in credit union advocacy and enjoy engaging speakers. The meetings are open to all credit union staff, volunteers and guests.


The meetings are usually held in the evenings at a local restaurant around dinnertime, and include a social hour and meal. The meetings are usually held once a month, roughly from September through May. Attendance at the meetings ranges from 30 people to more than 100, depending on the chapter.


The meetings are a great way to learn more about credit unions, meet peers who do the same kind of work, and sometimes, to get involved in grassroots efforts – such as networking with legislators – that can help credit unions and their members.


Besides bowling, golf, wine tasting, tailgates, live comedy and casino nights, chapters are featuring some interesting speakers. Here are a few of their topics:


  • Is your CU at risk from cyber exposure?

  • Workplace communication

  • Optimism, resilience & gratitude

  • It's your attitude, it's your day: make it a good one

  • Wellness night

  • Dream it, plan it, live it!

  • CU Jeopardy

  • Poverty awareness

  • Consumer credit

  • Fight on! Challenges to CUs then & now

  • Relieving holiday stress

  • Young professionals & CU careers

  • Update from a CUNA economist

  • Governance vs. performance

  • Activism & advocacy – CU philosophy in action

  • Service excellence – make 'em say "wow!"

  • Elder financial abuse

  • Improving attitudes

  • Making dreams come true

For your chapter's specific dates, topics and plans, visit, about The League, Chapters. 


The page includes a chapter map, links to every chapter’s program (schedule) information, and a list of League Liaisons for each chapter.


If you’d like to attend, ask your supervisor. You'll want to receive copies of your chapter's meeting reminders and get counted in the head-count for dinner. Some attendees pay for the meal on their own, while in some cases there are other ways this cost is covered.
