One hundred and fifteen million Americans have chosen to become member-owners of a not-for-profit credit union because credit unions put members ahead of profit, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan wrote to Congressional offices Tuesday. This week’s communication is the latest in CUNA’s continued engagement with all Congressional offices on the benefits of the credit union difference around the country.
“Credit unions are only as strong as their members,” Donovan wrote. “That’s why they continue to invest in their members’ financial inclusion, health, and security. That is the credit union difference.”
The message notes that:
CUNA’s last communication to Congress pointed out numerous inaccuracies in recent bank attacks, and CUNA will continue its engagement with Congress on the credit union difference and its effect on 115 million Americans in the coming weeks.
