Credit Union Times was established in 1990. In 2007 the publisher of the magazine, Wicks Business Information, was acquired by Summit Business Media. The magazine and website cover various topics of concern to credit union professionals as well as industry conferences and events, including technology and on-site conference coverage, people features, and statistical analysis. In February 2011, Credit Union Times relaunched its website, CUTimes.com, on an open-source platform.
Credit Union Times recognizes industry leaders each year with the Trailblazer Awards. Influential marketing, HR and IT executives are all recognized, along with CEOs and CFOs in the credit union industry. In 2011, leaders were honored in nine different categories.
