Email to the Hill: Credit unions improve your constituents' financial well-being
Posted March 04, 2021 by CUNA Advocacy

State credit union Leagues made sure that the credit union voice was heard this week with virtual meetings with policymakers during this year's virtual GAC. Prior to the start of this year's conference, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan wrote to all 535 Congressional offices prior to Leagues and credit unions meeting with elected officials.

Donovan said credit union advocates will be looking to “discuss ways Congress and credit unions work in tandem to advance your community and improve your constituents' financial well-being.”

Credit unions’ top priorities are:

  • Allowing credit unions to be there for those hit hardest by the pandemic’s economic fallout;
  • Passing a strong data security standard that preempts state laws;
  • Modernizing the way credit union charters are structured.

Financial well-being for all
