WASHINGTON (11/13/15)--CUNA hosted its first membership update webinar Thursday, where staff explained CUNA’s goals and objectives on the advocacy, compliance and political fronts.
The webinar, available free to CUNA members, will be archived within 24 hours, and will be available for viewing here.
“Our movement is the envy of so many other industries. The power of CUNA, the leagues, credit unions, service providers, professionals, volunteers and our now more than 100 million members is really an unequaled force that’s looking out for credit unions and the future of our industry,” CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said. “Advocacy is job one, and an interdependent, unified CUNA-league system working together with all the people in the credit union industry is really what delivers the most for credit unions.”
During his presentation, Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan explained what CUNA’s 360-degree advocacy is all about.
“Our goal is to create a more favorable operating environment for your credit union, through the removal of barriers and the expansion of powers and opportunities,” he said. “Credit union advocacy is about much more than just advancing our agenda; it’s also about repelling policy initiatives that complicate your efforts to serve your members.”
