Hiking the Hill for CUs
Advocates plan Capitol Hill visits Wednesday and Thursday.
Hike the Hill is a grassroots program sponsored by CUNA and the state leagues to provide credit unions with the opportunity to visit Washington to educate decision makers on credit union issues.
Many credit union leaders are meeting with Congressional leaders on the tail end of CUNA's Governmental Affairs Conference this week. Most visits are planned for Wednesday and Thursday.
Here's a look at the event from the inside:
