The National Institute for Lobbying and Ethics (NILE) recognized CUNA Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer for Federal Government Affairs Jason Stverak as one of the top lobbyists of 2022. NILE is the professional association for those in the lobbying and grassroots profession, and it curates an annual list of professionals who helped lead significant legislative success in 2022.
"I am deeply honored to be named one of NILE’s Top 100 lobbyists. This is a team honor, and I am blessed to lead one of the most talented and effective advocacy teams in Washington DC. I look forward to helping CUNA achieve its advocacy agenda through the end of this year and into the 118th Congress," said Stverak.
Stverak’s work on behalf of credit unions and their 130 million members has resulted in multiple victories this year, including: the signing into law of the Credit Union Governance Modernization Act, House passage and Senate introduction of the most significant field of membership modernization since 1998, the Government National Mortgage Association removing credit unions’ categorization as non-bank lenders, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board issuing an update to the current expected credit loss (CECL) standard eliminating Troubled Debt Restructuring (TDR) accounting requirements
Prior to joining CUNA, Stverak served as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND). His professional background includes extensive experience in communications, political affairs, and public policy. Stverak also served as the President and CEO of the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity.
