We are a Cooperative, Just like You

The National Cooperative Business Association

CU*Answers is a proud member of the The National Cooperative Business Association

CU*Answers is a CUSO and a Cooperative, and we’ve been living the cooperative spirit for years. Credit unions are cooperatives. CU*Answers is a cooperative. This is a driving business model for our industry. Cooperatives are built by their members; members who fund and direct their credit unions through elections of leaders, allowing individual interests to align with community needs.

How CU*Answers Walks the Talk

CU*Answers walks the talk. CU*Answers is a cooperative and believes in the cooperative business model. The following sites are just some examples of our collaborative products and thinking:

Report to Owners
The CU*Answers Report to Owners is published biannually as both a financial report and a recommitment to the principles that drive our CUSO. The CU*Answers Board of Directors is committed to providing full disclosure at all times. We encourage you to learn all that you need to know in order to become a fully vested partner.

AuditLink
Credit unions are subject to a bewildering number of policies and regulations. In order to assist credit unions with managing their obligations, CU*Answers AuditLink has created several tools to help simplify the compliance process and hopefully reduce the compliance cost burden for each institution.

Asking The Right Questions and the Financial Literacy Series for Board Directors
Financial Literacy for Board DirectorsCU*Answers believes financial literacy is more than just book learning. It comes from the interactions Board members have with each other and with credit union teams. It comes with the confidence you gain from experience, education, and perseverance as a volunteer. That’s why CU*Answers created these 2 industry tools to assist in the Board Room.

Live It! The 7 Cooperative Principles

We developed the Live It! series as a way for credit unions to differentiate themselves from other financial institutions. This series promotes the 7 Cooperative principles that expound on the value of membership and rewards and liberties of ownership. Credit unions have long been looking for a convincing message to shout from the rooftops. What better way than to employ the very principles that are at the foundation of credit unions and other cooperative businesses. GOK_Coop_Spirit_Facebook 7_principles_1 7_principles_2 7_principles_3 7_principles_4 7_principles_5 7_principles_6 7_principles_7

The Live It! Series is composed of 8 campaigns; one campaign for each of the 7 principles, and one overview campaign. Please take a look at the campaign materials by visiting our website for a closer look. It is a simple, cost-effective, and professionally designed package to bring this important message to your member owners.
