Credit union leaders and staff who join CCUL’s new website will discover a feature called Community Groups. Each of these community groups provide a place for peers with similar expertise or chapter affiliation to network, have forum discussions, collaborate, and learn from each other.

You must be a member of the CCUL website in order to join.

For instructions on how to join a group, go to our Site FAQs at

Group Features

  • Home - The group homepage will be the default tab. A description of the group is at the top. Below that are postings to your group including members of your group who updated profiles recently, events from the event calendar that apply to your section, and news that applies to your group.

  • Upload Photos – Select this option on the right-hand side to upload photos for your section. An example of photos would include pictures from meetings and events.

  • Group Directory – Members that join a group will automatically be added to the group’s directory. This makes it easier to find peers within the group and for admins to send bulk emails to all group members.

  • Calendar – View events posted by the league and your group administrator.

  • Forums – Join with others in threaded discussions on member-initiated topics.

  • Photo Gallery – Enjoy a slideshow of your group's latest activities.

  • Group Admin – If an admin has been assigned, he or she will be listed on the right-side of the group page. Contact them for anything regarding your group.

Take a few minutes today and browse through the groups and join one that interests you or Contact Us to suggest a new one. Feedback is encouraged!

Note: What you can do depends on the rights your group admin(s) allow for members. Different groups have different settings.
