New Monthly CUNA Webcast Keeps CUs Updated on Congress
WASHINGTON (12/10/13)--This month, the Credit Union National Association debuts yet another tool to help keep credit unions up to speed on the latest developments from the U.S. Congress: CUNA's Legislative Affairs audio webcast.

The first 15-minute webcast has been posted to the CUNA.org site and is hosted by CUNA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan. It addresses the ongoing threats to the credit union tax status and how they can be combatted. Other topics in the audio webcast include:
  • The level of productivity of the U.S. Congress through October of this year;
  • The late 2013 and early 2014 congressional agenda;
  • The outlook for housing finance reform;
  • Regulatory relief measures that could help credit unions; and
  • Advice on how credit unions can advocate their priorities as they meet with members of Congress.
CUNA legislative staff will update the audio webcast on a monthly basis.

"The webcasts will be a valuable tool for credit unions, and can be played at board meetings, and used as pre-Governmental Affairs Conference and Hike the Hill briefing materials," Donovan said.

The next webcast will be offered as Congress returns for the second session of the 113th Congress. A February webcast will focus on GAC preparation.
