67 million members matched via Project Zip Code
WASHINGTON (1/13/09)--More than 67 million credit union members have been matched with their congressional districts through Project Zip Code--a number that represents nearly 75% of the total 90 million members nationwide. "Being able to cite how many credit union members live in a particular congressional district or state is a very influential tool when credit union representatives want to make their cases to lawmakers," explained Elizabeth Furey, director of grassroots for the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). "The Project Zip Code information can help you get your foot in the door, and backs up your message by defining the number of voters who could be affected by a lawmaker's position on credit union issues," she added. Project Zip Code is one of a number of initiatives offered by CUNA to facilitate political involvement by credit unions. CUNA this week releases Version 9.0 of the software program. The improvements make the software easier to use, according to Furey. “It is important for credit unions to use every tool available to make their political voices heard," she said. As an added benefit, Project Zip Code information can be used by credit unions to help make decisions on where to locate ATMs and branches, noted Furey. Use the resource link below to learn more.
