Increase member satisfaction and generate ROA with a well-rounded portfolio. When credit union members are the first priority, designing a robust portfolio that meets their needs is of utmost importance. The essentials to member satisfaction and credit union growth are two-fold: impressive service; and competitive programs.
Including a credit card program in your credit union portfolio is a benefit to members and ultimately leads to growth. Unfortunately, including a credit card program can be overwhelming and stressful. It might seem like too much for your team to take on during uncertain, often challenging times.

The fact is, in 2021, growth is necessary for credit unions to remain relevant and to serve their members through the tough road ahead. A credit card program does not have to be a burden. As an extension of your credit union team, LSC can support the implementation and execution of a successful credit card program with the Accelerated Growth Program (AGP).
Members love their credit unions because of the service. People connect at credit unions and feel supported on their financial journeys.

Marrying the credit union experience with powerful financial tools will result in increased member satisfaction and credit union growth.
