Is Your Credit Union Charter Type Still Working?
Credit unions must re-examine their big-picture needs from time to time, and that often leads to the question of whether you’re operating under the appropriate charter. It may have worked in the past, but will it take you where you want to go? Community charter or multiple common bond? State or federal? Given the changes in your business or the economy and regulations, it’s a good idea to look into all of these questions occasionally. We start with a primer on state to federal charter conversions.
We help both state and federal credit unions convert their charter — below are some resources on charter conversion:
State charter to federal charter conversion
Federal charter to state charter conversion
Federal community charter to federal multiple common bond charter conversion
