In this article, the author discusses charter conversions in credit unions (CUs). He states that the anti-conversion rulemaking of the U.S. National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) reflects its insecurity in the future of credit union charter. He mentions that the anti-conversion belief was caught to the deceptive view that the U.S. Congress will offer solution to the problems of credit unions. It presents a table that shows comparison of the anti-conversion philosophy and conversion reality.
