(Albany, N.Y. and Harrisburg, Pa.) - The Credit Union Association of New York (CUANY) and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) have finalized an agreement to collaborate on information technology support. This initiative builds on previous collaborations between the two associations, including jointly hosted board dialogue sessions and Volunteer Conferences.
Moving forward, CUANY and PCUA will collaborate on customized network administration, AMS (association management system) support, helpdesk support, training and data backup/recovery.
“Information technology is a critical function for any organization, and it’s an area that can benefit greatly from shared expertise and resources,” said William J. Mellin, president/CEO of CUANY. “Both of our associations are committed to delivering the maximum value possible to our member credit unions, and this partnership will help us achieve that goal.”
“More and more credit unions are working together in their back office operations to achieve economies of scale, and both our associations recognize the value of this approach,” said Patrick Conway, president/CEO of PCUA. “This is a progressive, unique model of league collaboration, and it’s a great opportunity for us to increase efficiencies and reap the benefits of true cooperation.”
