TruStage: A Partnership Embodying the Heart of the Credit Union Movement
By William J. Mellin, President/CEO
As we near the end of International Credit Union Week, it’s a good time to reflect on the organizations and individuals who’ve championed our movement. This year’s theme is a powerful reminder that credit unions, rooted in local communities but with a global touch, have a unique role. It’s about helping members through thick and thin and always being there.
As we reflect, it’s crucial to mention our partnership with TruStage, an essential organization in our industry that’s gone above and beyond to support our events, provide essential resources, and even step up during challenging times. Their support amplifies our efforts, making it possible for us to serve our New York communities and be part of a larger, global effort.
To put it simply, we’re thankful for TruStage. Their partnership has strengthened both the New York credit union community and the global movement. Here’s to continuing our work together, hand in hand.
