Payments & Operations Council

The Cornerstone Payments & Operations Council provides comprehensive and robust services and information that help all credit unions successfully manage their operations. This council’s focus will be on payments, service culture, member/employee engagement, and educational opportunities. As a member of this council, you will be able to network and share ideas, as well as stay informed on relevant issues, problems and solutions.

Note for Kansas and Missouri credit unions: We are actively collaborating with Cornerstone Council and Kansas/Missouri Community leaders to finalize a plan for a combined offering. While we are working through this plan, please keep engaging with Communities on Heartland Connect.

Upcoming Events

The council program holds networking and educational events throughout the year. Keep checking back for more events.
