Late last week, the BCFP announced the new members of its reconstituted Credit Union Advisory Council (CUAC). All seven of the selected CUAC members are from CUNA-member credit unions.  

CUNA actively and outspokenly supported the CUAC as a necessary source of feedback for the Bureau during our discussions with BCFP officials, including Director Mulvaney, and in a white paper submitted in response to the Bureau’s comprehensive RFI process.  We thank Director Mulvaney for his decision to adopt our recommendations and preserve the CUAC.
