Michael E. Fryzel, a board member of the National Credit Union Administration, encouraged credit union professionals at the Defense Credit Union Council’s 50th Annual Conference on Tuesday to look towards the future.
“You have continued to offer honest and reliable low-cost financial services with a global reach to reduce the burden borne by the men and woman of our nation’s armed forces,” Fryzel said. “The men and women of the armed forces join your credit unions because they understand value. You must keep up this good work for military members and their families.”
Fryzel encouraged credit unions and their leaders to “keep thinking long term.”
“For fifty years, the council has been serving those who serve,” Fryzel said. “As you know, the path will not always be smooth, and it may not always be straight, but you and the industry as a whole must hold close to your vision. Keep thinking big, keep thinking long term, and keep your eye on a better future. I commend you on your service and wish you 50 more years of success.”
