The article discusses various problems associated with small credit unions (CUs) in the U.S. Bill Myers, director of the Office of Small CU Initiatives at the U.S. National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), says that small credit unions come up with good ideas, but they cannot implement them. NCUA has launched several new initiatives designed to aid small CUs and save money. Myers said that the Bank Transfer Day is a good opportunity for smaller credit unions to grow their memberships.
