COLUMBIA, S.C./RALEIGH, N.C. – The North Carolina CU League and South Carolina CU League have begun negotiating to combine the two organizations.
“For the past year the South Carolina Credit Union League Board of Directors has been engaged in a process to determine the strategic future of the organization,” said Faye Crocker, president of Greater Abbeville FCU and chairwoman of the league, acknowledging the retirement of current President Steve Fowler at the end of 2013.
The two associations share a long history of collaboration, including joint ownership in multiple entities, and they share a foundation and corporate credit union. Perhaps most importantly, credit union leaders in both states know each other and have developed strong working relationships through the years.
The North Carolina league represents 90 credit unions and the South Carolina league 72 credit unions.
