Washington
Tax Talk Kicks Off CUNA Inside Exchange Video Series
WASHINGTON (5/16/13)--The Credit Union National Association is launching a new regular video feature today called "Inside Exchange." CUNA has launched the new communications tool to give members insight into what's happening in Washington, D.C., in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas.

In the inaugural video, CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney and Executive Vice President of Strategic Communications and Engagement Paul Gentile dive into efforts to preserve the credit union tax exemption, including more about CUNA's new "Don't Tax My Credit Union" campaign.



Cheney in the video notes that Congress now has an interest in comprehensive tax reform--a key change that can put the credit union tax exemption into play.

"What's changed is that Congress is talking about starting with a blank sheet of paper," Cheney said. "It's not like last year when they were talking about closing loop holes--a blank sheet of paper means everyone has lost their tax exemption, and not just credit unions. They haven't done that yet--but the conversation has started now."

This first video gives a good flavor of what is to come as CUNA hits all the hottest credit union topics in these periodic videos. 

"This is just one more direct line to our member credit unions--to share what we know about the things they want and need to know about most," Gentile says.
