This is a great list, but falls short. Consider the myriad of other risks that can bring the credit union to its knees: Technology risks including viruses, trojans, data breaches and other forms of security compromises. People risks, including disgruntled employees, social engineering attempts, social unrest, prison breakout, social media entries that also affect the mentioned reputational risk. Environmental risks, which could include derailed or overturned chemical tankers,blizzards, hurricanes, tornados, sink holes (save the Corvettes!), earthquakes, mudslides, forest fires. Leaders always need to be asking themselves, "What could stop us from performing our mission?" A solid crisis management organization, coupled with a realistic, exercised business continuity plan is vital to ensure continued operations.

This is such a great example of credit unions giving back. The key with Complex Community is that they don't just do these acts of kindness just to do them. They are a part of their culture (as you noted). Before starting a similar program, other credit unions should do a deep dive into their culture and then match their program to who they are.
This article is spot-on regarding engagement. In fact, many credit unions need to replace their sales training with member engagement training. Your members don't want to be sold to--they want to be engaged with. Likewise, your front-line staff are not sales people--they are educators.
