CUNA has notched several victories on the advocacy front in the first half of 2016, said CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan. In this week’s Advocacy Update, Donovan outlines the successes of CUNA’s 360-degree advocacy approach, and the possibilities for future wins in the second half of 2016.
Wins on the regulatory front include the NCUA finalizing its member business lending rule, credit unions sending more than 8,000 comment letters in support of the agency’s field-of-membership proposal and more.
CUNA has also seen victories in congressional pressure on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to use its statutory exemption authority, and on the judicial front in its Home Depot data breach case and interchange surcharge case.
In the video, Donovan also outlines CUNA’s plans for a charter enhancement effort and continuing litigation strategy to achieve its public policy goals going forward.
