CUNA, Leagues Participate In State Legislators Meetings
CHICAGO, Ill. (8/12/13)--Credit Union National Association and state credit union league representatives are participating in the annual meetings of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) this month.
 
At the ALEC annual meeting in Chicago, CUNA and the leagues met with state lawmakers and staff from across the country to discuss

pro-credit union policies. Banks and other financial services industry lobbyists attended the meeting to promote and defend their institutions, so CUNA and leagues understand the importance of adding credit union voices to these discussions, notes Richard Dines, senior state and league affairs director for CUNA/American Association of Credit Union Leagues.
 
This week, the NCSL Annual Legislative Summit in Atlanta will attract thousands of state lawmakers and their staff. As a result of CUNA's long-standing efforts at these meetings, NCSL has a policy of supporting the dual chartering system for credit unions.
 
At each meeting, CUNA displays an exhibit booth featuring "America's Credit Unions" and demonstrates the breadth and strength of the industry by showing the numbers of credit unions and their members in each state. CUNA also attends committee meetings of state legislators to advocate for credit union interests.
