Spring session adjourns; ICUL, CUs fare well.  The Spring session of the Illinois General Assembly adjourned about 2:00 a.m. June 1.  The scheduled adjournment was midnight, May 31.  Despite the negative environment towards financial institutions, ICUL fared well this session.  ICUL actively lobbied over 80 bills that could impact credit unions and their business operations.  Of those bills, only 10 were actually supported by ICUL.  The rest we opposed or had been modified to allow us to become neutral on the measures.  Full story


Two Illinois CUs recognized as businesses of the year.  During a time when many financial institutions increased fees, reduced services and in some cases, merged or closed branches, DHCU Community Credit Union was busy making loans to members, preparing for future expansion and earning the distinction of being named the 2012 Quad Cities Small Business of the Year by the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce.  In addition, Land of Lincoln Credit Union has been named the Outstanding Large Business of the Year by the Greater Decatur Chamber.  Full story.
