TMG was chosen from more than 50 vendor partners who support credit unions in the two states.
TMG provides payment solutions, including credit, debit, ATM, prepaid and digital wallet, to community financial institutions, many of which are credit unions.
In advance of the leagues' annual meeting and convention, TMG leadership asked what the company could do to lend support creatively. The solution was for TMG to act as the sole financial sponsor of the annual meeting's Political Action Committee (PAC) Contributors Reception.
"Creating successful partnerships is a cornerstone of TMG's mission," said Shazia Manus. "Opportunities to team up with other leading credit union organizations to advance our industry are something for which we are grateful."
TMG is a regular contributor to many local fundraisers conducted by credit unions in these states and across the country.
The leagues' advocacy effort, led by a nine-person team, brings the voice of credit unions to federal and state regulators. With Congress focused on comprehensive tax reform, advocacy is a high priority credit unions nationwide, said TMG.
"Each of us at TMG understands the important role credit unions play in the lives of millions," said Chris Gunnare, TMG senior vice president of growth. "The sustainability of the movement depends on strong advocacy and involvement from every corner of the industry. We're proud to help amplify the voices of many who depend on credit unions for a healthy financial future."
