Being Merged

While the decision to merge your credit union into another is a strategic choice that may benefit the membership, it may be the most emotional decision your board will ever face. How will you know what criteria and when this is the right path?

The motivations for mergers vary, but may include:

  • Desire to provide better rates, more services, and technologies
  • Stagnant member or loan growth
  • Aging membership
