Credit unions' structure as cooperatives means our focus is not on some small, faraway group of shareholders, but on helping improve the financial position of every member-owner.

Your role is to find out what they need and guide them to the "yes" that will help them while minimizing your credit union's risk and growing your bottom line. You'll learn to help members achieve their dreams, and in so doing, strengthen your credit union financially.
