The Healthcare Credit Union Association is a professional association of credit unions serving healthcare employees and their families. The association originally began in concept in 2005, led by co-founders Maury Pilver, retired CEO of Healthcare's Cooperative Credit Union in Florida, and John Saatela, then CEO of CarePoint Credit Union in California. Maury and John organized and presented the first annual conference in September, 2007.
