  • Nu Direction Lending is a small business lender. It’s a credit union friendly version of the online business loan that’s a fast and effective option for small businesses.
  • There is a Zoom and Webinar fatigue. We want to give people the education and information we typically provide through webinars in a more flexible and on demand format.
  • Credit Union Conversations won’t always present neutral, boring answers. We want it to be opinionated. We’ll give you a little bit of controversial opinions.
  • Credit Union Conversations will give you a mix of current events and educational topics or updates on what’s going on at MBFS or our industry or the marketplace.
