2010 Hill hikes kick off this week
WASHINGTON (9/14/10)—Credit union advocates from across the country will meet the returning Congress this week as the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) kicks off the fall 2010 edition of CUNA’s Hike the Hill. The hikes, which will take place until the end of the month, will give credit union representatives from Oregon, Montana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Illinois, Minnesota, Idaho, and Ohio the chance to advocate on behalf of credit unions. Member business lending, alternative capital, the credit union tax exemption, and other related topics will be on the agenda for these meetings. Hundreds of credit union backers from various state leagues and individual credit unions have already met with congressional representatives during February’s Governmental Affairs Conference and in a pair of subsequent national hikes held later in the year. Credit union backers also met with their respective legislators during in-district work periods. Elizabeth Furey, director of grassroots advocacy for political affairs, said that the hikes are a vital part of CUNA’s credit union advocacy strategy, adding that CUNA, credit unions and the leagues must use every tool available to make their political voices heard.
