The Maine Credit Union League is a nonprofit, professional trade association that exists to serve Maine’s credit unions. Founded in 1938, the League is committed to helping credit unions succeed, and improve the financial lives of their members.
The League recognizes that the members are our credit union partners’ most important priority, which is why we are focused on ensuring credit unions are in the right place at the right time with the right solution. This is accomplished through the following:
Advocacy on behalf of Maine’s credit unions remains a key component of our mission. The League has been instrumental in favorably influencing decisions on many important issues affecting credit unions and their members, from legislation to public opinion.
From raising millions to help end hunger in Maine through the Maine Credit Unions’ Campaign for Ending Hunger and volunteering thousands of hours every year in the communities they serve to providing financial literacy education to Maine’s youth and adults, Maine’s credit unions are not just in a community, they are part of it.
Together, we’re a movement, offering the most comprehensive and accessible training and resources to advance our teams.
The League is directed by a democratically elected Board of Directors whose function is to ensure that the League’s initiatives serve the needs of the credit union community at large. The League maintains close affiliations with CUNA, Tricorp FCU, TruStage™, CUSO Home Lending, America’s Credit Union Museum, National Endowment for Financial Education (NEFE), and other organizations and municipal agencies that affect the welfare of its members.
With all of the compliance challenges facing credit unions today, the Maine Credit Union League has partnered with the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) to help credit unions find answers, resources and tools for compliance. From InfoSight to ComplySight to CU PolicyPro, the League offers a number of options to help credit unions navigate today’s regulatory environment.
As the state trade association, the Maine Credit Union League is the leading source and resource for communications on important issues, events and initiatives. Through our publications, we are committed to providing information in a timely manner.
To further support its member credit unions’ growth with competitive products and services, the League founded Synergent in 1971. As a service provider owned by credit unions, and serving only credit unions, Synergent provides comprehensive solutions, including technology, marketing, and payments, to its credit union partners across the country.
