Membership in NACUSO Will Provide You With Growth Options and Earnings Solutions Amid Today’s Economic Turmoil and Corporate Stabilization Effort.

NACUSO has evolved from an organization in 1985 that provided education and advice on the formation and operation of CUSOs to one that helps credit unions collaborate, innovate, and build business networks. NACUSO adapted to meet the changing need of the credit union industry. Today, NACUSO is “an educational organization comprised of a network of collaborators and innovators that embrace a positive industry message and amplifies the voice of credit unions and CUSOs by providing resources to help people collaborate, identify opportunities, build businesses, find solutions, and get things done.”

Membership Benefits.

Annual membership in NACUSO provides an educational and networking resource for credit unions, CUSOs, and vendors supporting the industry. Among the many benefits offered through NACUSO:

  • Provides a unifying source of industry leadership and sense of urgency for promoting collaboration and innovation to help the industry grow and survive.
  • Provides education and networking opportunities to help credit unions understand the value of “Buying CUSO”.
  • Creates the Ultimate Conference Experiences which highlight collaboration models, scalable platforms, multi-owned CUSOs and business networks.
  • Timely topics and blogs keep you current and up-to-date through peer insights with relevant information on CUSOs, networked businesses and collaborations.
  • Provides a mechanism and communication network for finding out “who’s doing what” in the industry, and discovering ways to synergistically work with other CUSOs, using the new NACUSO Marketplace and the CUSO Analyzer. The CUSO Analyzer is the only searchable database that contains all the CUSOs in the U.S. and the credit unions that use and/or support them. We make this data only available to our partners and members. In addition to the CUSO Analyzer, members have the opportunity to have a free listing in the NACUSO Marketplace. NACUSO Business Services has developed the NACUSO Marketplace to facilitate those connections on a digital platform. Service providers have a virtual sales booth they control. Credit unions are able to identify multiple provider choices, learn details about the services and value proposition of each provider, and compare providers to decide which providers to pursue further.
