About The League

Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation
Wisconsin Credit Unions Unite for Good

Compliance Demands Persist

Our united League/CUNA system helps you stay on top of the thousands of pages of new & changing regulations annually which– not surprisingly—have led 75% of credit union CEOs to say it’s become "very challenging" simply to keep up.  

Our combined compliance assistance helps to reduce credit unions’ exposure to regulatory penalties, prepare credit unions for visits by regulators and protect the credit union and its members from liabilities that have the potential to affect income, member service, reputation and more.
