ARLINGTON, Va. — The National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS) will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the state credit union charter at its annual State System Summit in Boston, Mass., August 20-22, 2009.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Board Member Tom Curry, National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Member and NASCUS liaison Gigi Hyland and Chip Filson of Callahan and Associates are among the event's confirmed speakers. As the nation faces an unprecedented economic environment, NASCUS' Summit will offer system-wide collaboration on how state credit unions can continue to provide financial health solutions for the next 100 years and beyond.

"We take great pride in this 100th anniversary and look forward to beginning the second century of a strong state credit union system."
