Our staff-sharing program allows credit unions of any size or budget to access expert, league-trained, state-specific compliance help (tied to our vast in-house online resources) to implement compliance workload at a fraction of what it'd cost you to hire this expertise independently. The program takes the compliance information The League has always offered and turns it into a boots-on-the-ground resource that gets compliance tasks organized and completed.

Two Options - Pick What's Right for Your Credit Union:

Partner Program

Regularly scheduled compliance support in your credit union

What is it?

Share a compliance specialist--hired, trained, and supervised by us--with other credit unions.

You get a trained specialist with full-time knowledge and credit union-specific training in your credit union at a fraction of the usual cost.

How it works

You have a choice of having a specialist in your credit union half time, quarter time, or less to fit your needs and budget.

They are an employee of the W.C.U.L. Services Corp., so you don't have to worry about benefits and other costs associated with bringing in a new employee.

Ideal For

This program is ideal for credit unions who either don't have an in-house compliance department or whose department needs additional support:

  • Digging out of a backlog of projects
  • Working through a list of examiner recommendations
  • Providing regular, consistent guidance 
Having the regular presence of a compliance specialist in your credit union will help keep your credit union informed of the latest regulatory changes.

What Others Have Said

“We have been participating in this program since its inception and provides great value to us. It is a great alternative to having to hire a staff person responsible for compliance.” – Taylor Credit Union

“The specialists reduce the burden a credit union feels – especially smaller ones. You feel someone is coming alongside to help and you don't have to go it alone. It releases you to do other things than to review policies or other compliance related functions that sap your time. Also, examiners seem to relax when they know you have a Compliance Specialist; it is obvious they view benefit in having one… This is an amazing program! – Brokaw Credit Union

“The benefit we receive for the cost is great … and the staff the staff are extremely knowledgeable.” – Gundersen Credit Union
