Calif./Nevada CUs Pledge 5% Of Members In 'Don't Tax' Campaign
ONTARIO, Calif. (8/26/13)--The Summit Round Table--a body of the 50 largest California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues' member credit unions--has pledged to engage at least 5% of its credit union members in the national "Don't Tax My Credit Union" campaign.

The leagues seek to persuade credit union members to send letters to Congress through Connect For The Cause, a grassroots website.

"I'm impressed by the level of commitment of these credit unions to the 'Don't Tax My Credit Union' campaign and their pledge to persuade 5% of their membership to send letters to legislators," said Diana Dykstra, the leagues' president/CEO. "I encourage all other credit unions, no matter how small or large, to continue to spread the word to their membership on this important campaign to preserve our tax-exempt status."

So far this year, credit union members in California and Nevada have sent 145,000 letters to congressional legislators encouraging them to support the credit union movement's tax-exempt status. Nearly 100,000 of those contacts were sent through Connect for the Cause, said the league.

Don't Tax My Credit Union is the Credit Union National Association's and state leagues' campaign to raise awareness and urge Congress to keep the tax-exempt status. For more information, check the website www.donttaxmycreditunion.org.
