Cooperative Alliance Program (CAP) - Helping you Navigate the Industry
The Credit Union Association of the Dakotas has created the Cooperative Alliance Program (CAP) to allow vendors the opportunity to increase visibility and relationships with Dakotas’ credit unions.

CAP vendors must offer professional service, superb products, and competitive pricing. These companies must understand the qualities that make credit unions unique and strive to help credit unions provide the best service possible to Dakotas’ credit union members.
