NASCUS POSTPONES NATIONAL MEETING IN NEW ORLEANS
Due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), NASCUS has made the decision to postpone its annual National Meeting for state credit union regulators until later this year. The meeting was scheduled to take place next week in New Orleans.
NASCUS President and CEO Lucy Ito and Vice President of Education Isaida Woo, PhD released the following statement:
“The decision to postpone the National Meeting was a difficult one, since we know how valuable this meeting is for those who attend each year. However, given the current situation in New Orleans and around the country, we determined this was the prudent decision – both for the personal health and safety of attendees and the ongoing operations of state credit union regulatory agencies, as we all face an evolving pandemic scenario.
“We look forward to hosting the National Meeting later this year in New Orleans. We thank Commissioner of the Louisiana Office of Financial Institutions, John Ducrest, and his entire team for their willingness to co-host the event with us upon re-scheduling.”
