  • Decorative icon Purpose

In 2007,

some passionate CEOs of healthcare credit unions formed Healthcare Credit Unions International (HCUI) with the idea of supporting each other through collaborative efforts. HCUI evolved into a formal association and restructured to become Healthcare Credit Union Association (HCUA) in 2012. Today we are a professional association of credit unions that serve healthcare employees and their families throughout the United States.

While governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, the Executive Director manages the day-to-day administration of the organization, sponsor relations, member recruitment and retention, and conference planning.

To be a trusted collaboration of like-minded credit union professionals focused on supporting healthcare members.

HCUA Leadership

HCUA is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the member credit unions. The Board is comprised of healthcare credit union executives from across the US. The Board meets periodically by phone throughout the year, and twice in person, at the annual planning session and at the annual education conference.

There are three volunteer positions that report to the Board of Directors on your behalf; Audit Representative, Bill Hawkins, Nomination Coordinator, Ron Senci, and Conference Committee Chair, Jason Mertz-Prickett.

Former credit union CEO, Benita Harp, with 30+ years in the industry runs the daily operations as the Executive Director.
