National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations (NACUSO)

The National Association of Credit Union Service Organizations (NACUSO) was formed in 1985 to help credit unions explore the use of CUSOs and the delivery of non-traditional products and services. NACUSO is dedicated to promoting collaboration through CUSOs and innovative solutions for the credit union movement. They have been successfully advocating for a regulatory environment conducive to collaboration for over 35 years. Members of NACUSO believe that innovation coupled with collaboration are the means by which credit unions can transform themselves and achieve a new level of success, and combine the best elements and advantages of free-market theory with traditional credit union philosophy.

Why NACUSO chose Centennial Lending.

According to NACUSO, they had a very compelling group of nominees this year. The award committee indicated myriad factors that separated Centennial Lending from the other nominees. Specifically:

  • Helping credit union members over the last 20 years, especially during COVID while having our employees working from home.
  • Consistently remaining profitable.
  • Delivering exceptional value to 24 credit union owners.

NACUSO was also impressed with the way we help well over 100 credit unions make mortgages to their members, navigate the complexities of the auto lease servicing, as well as offering member business loans. They were further inspired by our ability to complete these various business activities while achieving incredible Net Promoter Scores (i.e. 85 in commercial lending and 75 in mortgages).
