Welcome to LSCU Councils!

LSCU Councils are professional organizations designed to hone your specific credit-union-related skills – or to help you learn some more.

The League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates offers these discipline-specific networking groups to help credit union professionals (like you!) excel in their field and advance their credit unions. If you’re interested in joining a group of peers to share resources, learn best practices and engage in meaningful discussions around your credit union role – we know we have a council for you!

Benefits for YOU as a council member:

2 Virtual Meetings Per Year ("But virtual meeting can sometimes be boring!" We know - and we promise to bring YOU the best information we can in a lively fashion and allow for networking discussions with other council members!)

1 In-Person Event Per Year (Locations and Details TBA!)

Online Community to Network with Members (Coming soon in 2022). This will bring you:
- Ability to connect with other members in discussions.
- Sharing of documents and resources.
- LSCU will share all past council meeting presentations, videos, and other information here so you can always refer to it!

what people say

LSCU Councils are not only a targeted means to elevate knowledge of relevant information for a variety of professions in the Credit Union arena, but also a channel for cultivating peer and mentor relationships that may otherwise not develop without Council involvement. Councils put the best foot of Credit Union collaboration forward by providing regional engagement opportunities for a variety of disciplines, career levels, and leadership paths.

When it comes to cultivating stronger, more knowledgeable credit union employees, nothing beats the collaborative style of the councils format. You’ll be surprised what kind of outside-the-box ideas your professionals will bring back to your credit union after networking and learning at a council meeting. It’s a game changer when it comes to innovation and growth!

I highly value my experiences within the council structure. Its focus on collaborative learning, new experiences, and dynamic engagements have supported my career growth and have led to positive change within our organization. The chance to interact with colleagues across the state in varying roles & institutions is at premium, now more than ever before. This diverse networking group routinely sets the stage for expansion of horizons and deepening of perspectives through impactful and relevant content – squarely aimed at the needs of its members.
