Taking our message to Congress

First, thanks to all our members for supporting our Interchange petition drive. We had a lot of members agree with our message in the branches and here on our site, and we appreciate all the support.

Second, we’re taking a broader message to Congress:

[Credit unions are] gathering to advocate for credit union members– to protect them from rising costs, to allow the financial institutions they own build more capital, to help them help the economy recover and grow – and to ensure that their credit unions are around to serve them for a long, long time.

The Hill reports that CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference will be a gathering of credit union pros who will take the credit union philosophy – not-for-profit tax status, lower fees, sensible government regulation – to our representatives in Congress.

It should be a heated, active event, especially considering all that’s going on in the financial industry.
