Our Mission: Provide credit unions with the best federal advocacy, education and compliance assistance in the industry.
The National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) is a direct membership association for federally insured credit unions. We are committed to representing, assisting, educating and informing our member credit unions to help them grow, and help grow the credit union industry. Grow stronger.
Our Beliefs: We believe in credit unions
- We believe that credit unions are the best option for consumers. Period.
- We believe credit unions deserve the absolute best in advocacy, education and compliance assistance.
- We believe in providing our members “extreme member service.” Every. Single. Day.
- We believe our members deserve an association that is frugal, efficient and effective when spending their dues dollars.
- We are not just a trade association. We believe in credit unions and their mission.
Our Story: A hole in the wall and a hole in the marketplace
NAFCU started in a bar (a hole-in-the-wall, as they say). A late night discussion ensued among credit union cohorts about specific federal interests of credit unions that just weren’t being met. There was a hole in the marketplace. In 1967, NAFCU was formed by a group of credit unions to fill that hole.
Since its founding, our small, but agile association has been a highly effective advocate for credit unions at the federal level. We were the first credit union trade association to set up shop in the Washington D.C. area and have been storming the Hill for and with our members ever since.
We have crossed many milestones since our first major victory in 1970, when the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) was enacted. We were the sole (and successful) defender of the NCUSIF in the early 1990s when regulators and the White House were advocating for major change to it, and we were the only trade association to oppose the CFPB’s authority over credit unions when the agency was formed (a stance we keep to this day as we fight to reduce the agency’s burdensome impact on credit unions).
Over the years we have been able to build on our foundation, growing stronger with our members and steadfast in our beliefs and focus: providing unwavering federal advocacy, top-rated education, one-of-a-kind compliance assistance and supreme responsiveness. Why? Because we believe credit unions are the best and they deserve the best.
