Championing the credit union movement
We're Credit Union National Association, or CUNA. We stand for America's credit unions and fiercely advocate for all of them. We help build careers and professional networks. We champion the credit union story at every turn and help credit unions better serve their 130 million members.
CUNA is recognized as the most influential financial services trade association. We make sure policymakers and regulators know why credit unions are the best financial services choice for Americans. Advocacy lies at the heart of everything we do for our members.
Our collaboration with strong system partners is part of our unique and powerful value proposition. Beyond the movement, our coalitions are highly valued in DC by both Democrats and Republicans alike, a driving factor behind why CUNA is one of the Top 10 most respected associations in Washington. In fact, according to data from 2019 Policy Brand Insights—a Ballast Research study of effectiveness in Washington—we're the only financial services association studied across the last three years whose coalitions have become more effective during that period.
We proudly stand with organizations like these:
The CUNA-League system is the most credible trade association in Washington across all industries.

Our power of association
The combined power of a national association, state leagues, member credit unions and 130 million members form an unequaled network looking out for credit unions’ best interests. We are stronger—and better—together.
We work with the Leagues on important initiatives like these:
The former House Budget Committee chairman is a big reason why credit unions exert such influence on financial regulations.
