About the Book

After a quarter century of serving in the credit union movement-industry by this author, this book is more comprehensive than his first book on credit unions in 1994—THE CREDIT UNION DIRECTOR: Roles, Duties, and Responsibilities.  This work examines the milieu of the credit union world as related to current theory, process, and practice.  In addition, fictional, composite cases provide the reader with the opportunity, through the application process, to analyze the performance and behavior of fictional credit unions and that of the reader’s credit union by using the case analysis approach.
