Cheney Report Details CU Fin Ed Efforts
WASHINGTON (11/12/13)--The financial education efforts of TopLine FCU, Maple Grove, Minn., received top billing in this week's edition of The Cheney Report.

The $340-million-in-assets credit union held personal money management educational sessions at last month's Minnesota Student Leadership Summit. TopLine's session, "The Real World of Personal Money Management," was attended by more than 300 students and built on the themes of the event by helping students better understand how to manage finances.

TopLine FCU's story is one of several that CUNA has featured in recent editions of The Cheney Report. CUNA is collecting these stories to showcase how credit unions are joining forces to Unite for Good. Cheney has encouraged credit unions to visit UniteforGood.org and share how they are helping reach CUNA's shared, strategic vision in which Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.

Back in Washington, Cheney noted, "signs and hints that tax reform is gearing up continue to accumulate." A tax reform discussion draft outlining the thinking of the committee's leadership on a particular issue could be released in the coming weeks. CUNA is focused on keeping the credit union tax exemption intact in discussion drafts, and needs credit union supporters nationwide to stay engaged in the Don't Tax My Credit Union campaign to achieve that goal, Cheney emphasized.

This week's Cheney Report also includes:
  • Details on CUNA Chief Economist Bill Hampel's testimony before the Senate Banking Committee;
  • Highlights from the second part of a two-part Inside Exchange interview with National Credit Union Administration Chairman Debbie Matz; and
  • An update on Senate privacy legislation.
