Statement of Commitment to Alabama Credit Unions
This Statement of Commitment to Alabama Credit Unions is consistent with our League
Mission to provide the environment, leadership and services to empower and help
enable credit unions to fulfill their potential as unique financial institutions serving a
growing family of members. The Alabama Credit Union League is committed to credit
unions - to credit union members, volunteers and staff – and to the Credit Union System.
We will constantly try to uphold our fundamental responsibility to serve member credit
unions. We will treat all credit unions with respect and dignity. We will develop and
deliver a desirable range of products and services designed to support the needs of
credit unions in the most cost-effective, time-efficient and equitable manner possible. We
will support credit unions in their efforts to improve the financial well being of their
members. And, we will continually, in all facets of operations, strive to demonstrate the
value of League membership.
We will monitor and communicate our services to our member credit unions, so that
credit union members, potential credit union members, legislators, regulators, and the
community at large will better understand and appreciate the unique role that member-
owned financial cooperatives and “the credit union difference” play in the lives of people
everywhere. We will work to help make the credit union system stronger and more
effective in protecting credit union interests.
We believe in the Credit Union Statement of Commitment to Members and its ability to
help credit unions articulate their uniqueness by addressing fundamental credit union
differences such as service to members, member education, democratic control,
diversity, commitment to the credit union movement and other cooperative activities, and
voluntary community outreach.
This Statement of Commitment to Credit Unions is our declaration to the public that we
believe in credit unions. We believe in the credit union operating principles and our
