About the Commercial Services Council

The Commercial Services Council provides an opportunity to discuss best practices and connect with other credit union professionals involved in similar programs. Topics discussed will range from business deposit and loan products to business development and marketing strategies specific to MBL and commercial service programs. Two annual meetings provide an outlet and a source for solving problems that will further the success of credit unions.

During the meeting, we will be reviewing the commercial lending database that this group put together a few years back, discussing exam hot button issues, and more.
