The health and welfare of credit union staff, volunteers, and members are of utmost importance to the Carolinas Credit Union League. We are monitoring developments related to Coronavirus (COVID-19), including credit union travel, meeting, and service policies, hotel and venue precautions, and the status of public and private entities.

Until otherwise indicated, League staff are working remotely and are to forego out-of-office events and in-person meetings. Office extensions have been forwarded to ensure prompt attention to incoming calls. Those providing direct services such as auditing and accounting are actively working with each credit union using alternative procedures where possible.

Please use our League Staff Directory to find and reach out to individuals with specific questions or needs.
