We have a lot to celebrate this month, and we hope you’ll join us!

First, come cheer for your peers on Oct. 19 at the Member Appreciation & Awards Event. At this exclusive CUES members-only program, we’ll honor the winners in each CUES Award category, recognizing their outstanding contributions to the credit union industry.

We’ll also pay tribute to International Credit Union Day, recognizing the global impact of credit unions as they empower their members’ financial futures.

Don’t miss this interactive gathering, honoring your accomplishments and celebrating with your peers. Register at

There is also cause for celebration in the findings of the 2023 CUES Executive Compensation Survey. In this month’s cover story, we report that many credit union positions saw 8% to 9% salary increases over 2022. The survey collects data for 23 CU titles, and in the same-sample analysis (this measures credit unions that reported data in both 2022 and 2023), 20 positions showed a compensation increase. However, the increases are not as dramatic as they were in 2022’s survey. This points to a calming of the employees’ market created by the Great Resignation.

I am also happy to share that the myCUES dashboard has received another award. Early this summer it took home a gold Excel Award. Now it has been recognized by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals with a Platinum dotComm Award honoring excellence in web creativity and digital communication. The award recognizes the myCUES Dashboard as a powerful, personalized online tool created to give CUES members easy access to their benefits. Find it at

Finally, I am excited to share a new resource with you. The “Talent Development Trends in the Credit Union Industry” whitepaper reports on the findings of the fourth annual HR and talent development survey that CUES conducted earlier this year. In the report, you can read about the challenges other credit unions are facing and find resources for responding to them. Locate this new CUES member resource on your myCUES dashboard. cues icon
