CU*Answers Executive Vice President Scott Collins commented: “We are excited to be co-sponsoring this year’s Firefighter event with our network partners. Each of our CUSOs does business with credit unions that server the firefighting communities throughout the country, so we decided to combine forces to help support this great cooperative event. I think I can speak for my peers at the other CUSOs when I say that we are very much looking forward to the opportunity to network with great folks that serve their communities in a multitude of ways.”
