The CUNA-League advocacy team marked another successful year in 2022, both in terms of what it accomplished and the bad ideas it stamped out.
Looking ahead, this team will continue working to expand credit union powers and opportunities, reduce regulatory barriers, and protect credit unions’ role in the financial system.
It all starts with a simple motto: Trust credit unions to serve their members.
In this episode of the CUNA News Podcast, CUNA Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer Jason Stverak highlights advocacy wins from 2022, looks ahead to priorities in 2023, and shares what he likes most about the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference, which will be held Feb. 26 to March 2 in Washington, D.C.
