"Denver Community Credit Union has participated in the CU Direct Connect (CUDC) program for more than a decade.  As most credit unions know, the automotive market-space is becoming increasingly competitive. Consequently, gaining new market share and retaining exiting member financing is becoming progressively difficult. CUDC helps us maintain our competiveness by providing our members the convenience of obtaining credit union financing at the dealership. Similarly, CUDC manages the relationship with hundreds of auto dealers on our behalf while ensuring that our members are protected through stringent lending compliance. I work with many credit union service organizations (CUSO’s) and CUDC is considered one of our most valued partners."
