Handling stimulus payments, increasing focus, and recognizing employees

Posted: Jan 13, 2021 | Author: Cornerstone League

This issue of the Leaguer contains important information on how to handle stimulus payments. It also includes recognition from our all-staff training and insights on feeding your focus, as well as examples of credit unions demonstrating the “people helping people” philosophy.

To offset or not to offset? With the passage of HR 133, credit unions will see (and most already are seeing) a rash of new deposits in their members’ accounts from the U.S. Treasury Department. The question is, are these protected funds? Learn more from the Leaguer story.

Speaking of stimulus payments, as the second round of economic impact payments begins rolling out, the National Credit Union Foundation has some helpful advice for credit unions on how to best help their members.

I’d also like to share insights from our recent all-staff meeting and recognize our exceptional team, including Manager of the Year Tamra Gaines, and Employee of the Year Kati Buchanan. See the Leaguer articles for more information.

This issue contains these stories and more, including two reports on how credit unions help their members and communities from Texas Trust CU and Neighborhood CU.

Wishing you a healthy and productive week.
