Dan Berger, the executive vice president of government affairs at the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, said on Thursday that “it’s a great time to be a credit union.”
Berger will take over as president and CEO of NAFCU on Aug. 1. He said during the association’s 46th annual Conference and Solutions Expo that NAFCU will focus on operating with financial prudence, investing in technology and expanding education and training for credit union employees and continuing to serve as credit unions’ chief advocate before the NCUA, CFPB and Congress.
Berger noted the challenges faced by credit unions and thanked the institutions for their service to customers during the financial crisis. He said NAFCU and its members will “keep [their] eyes open for opportunities and ways to move [the] industry forward.”
“Above all, I promise you this, NAFCU will continue to have a relentless focus on our members,” Berger said. “You are job one. From the smallest member to the largest – we are here for you.”
