WASHINGTON and MADISON, Wis. (8/10/09)--Today the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) is blowing out 75 birthday candles. It was Aug. 10, 1934, when CUNA's Constitution and Bylaws were signed in Estes Park, Colo., less than two months after the Federal Credit Union Act was signed and 25 years after the nation's first credit union was established.
"Seventy-five years ago, an extraordinary group of credit union pioneers held a 'meeting of the minds' in Estes Park, Colo., about a national association that would enhance the movement throughout the land and help it become self-reliant," said CUNA President/CEO Dan Mica.
