CUDX fully expects to meet their goal of signing 100 credit unions by the end of the year. “We’re pleased to see that the credit union industry is seeing as much value in this forward-thinking initiative as we do,” said April Clobes, Chair of the CUDX Governing Board and President & CEO of Michigan State University Federal Credit Union. “We have a few more openings to fill, but so far the response from credit unions is that they are excited about this opportunity.”

“The whole credit union movement is driven by the sort of collaboration and cooperation that you’re not going to see in any other industry,” said Adam Wright, Managing Director of CUDX Operations. “By participating in CUDX, credit unions are accelerating the value of data not only for themselves but for the entire community.” 

Space remains available in each of the three member classes, Founding Member, Investor Member and Member. Additionally, seats are still available on the three councils that will guide how CUDX moves forward: Research & Innovation Council, Data Privacy, Risk & Compliance Council and Data Governance Council.
