On a daily basis, a credit union is faced with having to comply with a multitude of legal documents that are served on it. These documents can order your credit union to produce confidential customer information, hold member funds, and can even order it to seize property in its possession belonging to the member.

If you find these documents confusing and intimidating, attend this multi-state seminar to learn the best practices of how to deal effectively with these documents and the parties who serve them upon you.
