New York State extended until July 6th an increasingly important Executive Order permitting the use of remote notarization.  In recent weeks as we have gotten feedback from credit unions about the key issues to champion going forward, remote notarization has emerged as a top priority.  We will be reaching out to all of you in the not too distant future.  So stay tuned and be ready.  Oh boy!

CUNA Board Passes Racial Justice Resolution

This time really is different.  The protests over the death of George Floyd are sparking discussions not only about police tactics but what industries large and small are doing to make America a fairer place.  The credit union industry is, of course, not immune.  On Thursday, CUNA’s Board passed a resolution committing the organization to come up with concrete steps that the industry could take to address racial inequality by August 10th.

Have a great day.
