Established in 2014, the not-for-profit Carolinas Credit Union League unites the former leagues of North Carolina and South Carolina, each begun in 1934 by leaders committed to the cooperative spirit and the common goal of credit union growth.
The Carolinas Credit Union League is at its core the primary advocate for credit unions, focusing members' collective political voice. Yet it is much more than a strong advocate, helping promote credit union success through regulatory compliance support, product enhancement, service delivery, and employee education.
