A Team to Deliver Your Best Future

CrossState Credit Union Association was born from a collaborative merger between two iconic credit union associations: New Jersey Credit Union League and Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.

Both organizations were founded in 1934 and have played an impactful role in the credit union movement by delivering world-class training and education, offering unrivaled expertise in compliance issues, and providing expert political and regulatory advocacy.

From our newest additions to our CEO, our staff is empowered to move your credit union forward through the unique expertise and talents they bring to their respective fields. We look forward to working with you.
