Pennsylvania Credit Union Association
The Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) is the trade association for Pennsylvania's credit unions created in 1934 as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. The Association is owned by its member credit unions and is governed by a nine-member Board of Directors, elected by, and from, affiliated credit unions. Nearly 90 percent of Pennsylvania's credit unions are members of the Association.
PCUA is also part of of the national system. Click here for an overview of the credit union system.
The mission of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association is to provide leadership to promote credit unions and their unique philosophy. We are committed to serving credit unions through quality products and services to meet the financial needs of their members; to maintaining a dynamic organization that fosters employee growth and mutual respect; and to exercising prudence and the highest ethical standards.
The Association's service corporation, Pacul Services, Inc., was created to provide credit unions with quality products and services at competitive pricing. Since its humble beginnings as a supply depot for credit union forms and supplies, Pacul Services has grown to include a variety of operational and member service programs for nearly any credit union need, providing several services using internal resources, including Audit Services and Card Correspondent Services. In addition, Pacul Services works with business partners to offer quality products and services through buying cooperative arrangements to provide additional value to credit unions over what could be obtained on an individual basis. Sales and service for these programs are provided through your credit union's Account Executive.
Day-to-day management of the Association is overseen by President/CEO James J. McCormack, who is a Certified Credit Union Executive (CCUE), a Certified League Executive (CLE), and a Certified Association Executive (CAE). McCormack also runs the Association's service corporation, Pacul Services, Inc. In addition, he also serves as President/CEO of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Service Centers (PaCUSC) and is an ex-officio board member of the Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation.
