More than 200 credit union leaders representing 10 states are in Washington, D.C. this week to talk credit union issues with policymakers. Credit unions and leagues from California, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin will be meeting with elected officials and regulators, and will receive briefings from CUNA staff.
Topics of discussion with policymakers includes the need for data security legislation, education on the credit union mission and structure, regulatory relief and how credit unions are going above and beyond to serve their members.
Throughout the week, CUNA staff will provide updates on CUNA’s advocacy, political and grassroots agendas. Most of the hikers will also meet with staff from NCUA and the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.
Thirty-one young professionals in town for Hike the Hill kicked off their week with CUNA’s second young professionals advocacy training Monday.
Stay tuned to CUNA News this week with updates from this week’s hikes.
