Washington
N.C., S.C. Leagues, CUs Kick Off 2013 Hill Hike Advocacy
WASHINGTON (5/14/13)--Credit union leaders from North Carolina and South Carolina this week will kick off Spring advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill. These visits come at a vital time for credit unions, as tax reform and regulatory relief are on the minds of many in Congress.

"These groups continue to show the credit union commitment to advocacy. North Carolina and South Carolina credit unions have been some of the most frequent visitors in the 15 years of the Hike the Hill program," Credit Union National Association Senior Vice President of Political Affairs Richard Gose said.

Both groups said communicating credit unions' positive impact on their communities and membership will be their highest priority. The hikers will also target congressional support for legislation to increase the member business lending cap,  enhanced supplemental capital access, and other credit union priorities during their visits.

North Carolina Credit Union League staff will be accompanied by representatives from Raleigh's Coastal FCU and Local Government FCU; Waynesville's Mountain CU; Winston Salem's Allegacy FCU and Winston-Salem FCU; Charlotte Metro FCU; and Salisbury's Lion's Share FCU.

The South Carolina Credit Union League  group will include representatives from Hartsville's SPC CU, Charleston's Heritage Trust FCU; Palmetto Cooperative Services; Greenville's SC Telco FCU and Greenville FCU; and Sumter's SAFE FCU.

Both groups will also meet with National Credit Union Administration Deputy Director of Examination and Insurance Tim Segerson and attend the NCUA's Thursday open board meeting.

Credit union representatives from Oregon, Washington and Missouri have planned late May hikes. Michigan, Texas, Wisconsin and Arkansas credit union groups are scheduled to visit Washington in June.
