Our History

Organized in 1972 to represent the special interests of education and school credit unions, the founding members recognized that educator CUs are unique and could greatly benefit from cooperatively coming together to share ideas and resources. As the number of credit unions peaked, over 360 credit unions belonged to ECUC and were regular attendees at our annual conference. Now, over forty years later, with so many changes in the CU industry, the Council continues to be the pillar upholding the vision and mission of education in CUs across the nation.
