Small Credit Union Resources
The Nebraska Credit Union League believes that the success of small credit unions is imperative to the success of the entire credit union movement. Education and training, regulatory and compliance assistance, and operational guidance are just some of the ways we assist small credit unions. These resources allow small credit unions ways to strengthen operations and provide quality service to their members.
Small Credit Union Advisory Task Force
The mission of the Small CU Task Force is to serve as the source of guidance and recommendations to NCUL in regards to needs, challenges, and opportunities for those in small credit unions. The committee is appointed by NCUL and is made up of small credit union management.

Credit Unions for Kids is a cooperative effort of credit unions nationwide that raised millions of dollars each year for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) and its affiliated Children’s Hospital. With Credit Unions for Kids, 100% of the funds raised in Nebraska go to the hospitals that serve Nebraskans. Starting in 2013, the newest sponsorship the credit unions of Nebraska will tackle will be for the newly remodeled Rainbow House. Learn More

Today, credit unions are facing an extensive array of challenges and opportunities. In an effort to address these issues, I would like you to consider becoming a member of a League Committee/ Subcommittee.
The League prides itself on addressing these issues based on advice and counsel from individuals who are, themselves, dealing with these challenges and making the most of the opportunities on a daily basis. Our committee system at the League is made up of these very individuals—leaders from within the credit union community who care about the future of credit unions and are willing to take action.
We are grateful to all of the dedicated individuals who have to taken an active role in the League’s Committee System.
