WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - For its 10th anniversary issue, The Credit Union Journal asked credit union leaders for their predictions for the credit union landscape in another 10 years:

Credit unions will continue to work cooperatively to share infrastructures and best practices, while CUSOs deliver cost-effective rates and newer ways of servicing members. Mergers accelerate the industry growth rate and help credit unions achieve larger market share, but stiff competition from large banks will remain. The fastest growing credit unions are those with open fields of membership that focus on multi-channel, multi-product service packages. Credit unions will segment their membership more for product packages and servicing. On the political front Congress may address the taxation status of credit unions, but we do not expect a revocation of the tax exemption.
