We know you are reading over some regulation nonsense and doing one of two things: slowly falling asleep because of all the excitement or pulling your hair out of your head trying to understand what all of it really means.

Well, you are not alone. By becoming a member of the Compliance Peer Group, you become part of LCUL’s CU Wolfpack, a group that stands tall and takes on the world of compliance together. And we will do so with a little more fun than the rest of the compliance community (well, we’re going to try really hard). You’ll be able to access everything on one page: compliance resources, listservs, and articles.

We hope this peer group promotes all of LCUL resources while giving our members another means of networking with their peers in a laid back environment.

Our goal is simple: we want to provide a space where professionals can grow by learning from one another in a collaborative environment, providing relevant resources and opportunities to spark creativity. By pulling together what we have learned and experienced as individuals, we can evoke change and propel the credit union movement in Louisiana together.

We look forward to creating a fun and collaborative environment for Louisiana CU professionals to share, learn & grow.
