Oklahoma CUs Build Their Own CU House
TULSA, Okla. – Credit union representatives from around the state met here last week to break ground on the state’s own Credit Union House. The project, within view of the state Capitol, will serve as the headquarters for the Oklahoma CU League and as a meeting place and training facilities for credit unions, state legislators and community groups, similar to the Credit Union House built by the state leagues in Washington, D.C. Twenty-five Oklahoma credit unions bought shares in the project. Construction is scheduled to begin this spring. Several other states, including Missouri, have either built or are considering building their own CU House, which has significantly raised both the profile and campaign financing capability for CUNA, which offers it as a fundraiser venue.
