Have you been to a credit union chapter meeting? Now’s your chance, because every September is when the new chapter meeting season shifts into high gear.
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.
Chapter 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.

How to Participate
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.
