In this episode, we dive into the rapidly expanding world of cannabis banking—a sector buzzing with opportunity yet tangled in regulatory constraints. Despite the broad legalization across states, federal hesitancy leaves many entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry struggling to find financial footing, caught in a limbo of being either unbanked or underbanked. Enter the vanguard of the Credit Union Industry, who are not just observing from the sidelines but actively stepping in to bridge this glaring gap.

Join us for an enlightening discussion with two trailblazers leading the charge. Marsha Majors, President and CEO of US Eagle Federal Credit Union—one of New Mexico's most storied credit unions—shares her insights on delivering innovative financial solutions amid the unique challenges of cannabis banking. With a steadfast dedication to community service, Marsha brings invaluable perspectives on navigating the complex landscape of regulations and operational hurdles.

Alongside Marsha, we welcome Tony Repanich, President and COO of Shield Compliance. Tony illuminates the path for financial institutions with Shield's cutting-edge compliance management platform, making it simpler for banks and credit unions to extend their services to Cannabis-Related Businesses (CRBs) safely and efficiently.
