As credit union leaders plan for their visits to Capitol Hill next month, CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Robert Lewis let lawmakers know credit unions are headed their way. Lewis sent a message to all 535 Congressional offices Wednesday, highlighting credit unions’ commitment to working with the 118th Congress.
“America’s credit unions are focused on helping their member-owners—your constituents—remain stable in challenging times like these. Our focus is on their financial well-being. Credit unions invest in our members with higher returns on savings, lower interest rates on loans, and fewer fees,” he wrote. “Working together, CUNA and state credit union Leagues represent America’s credit unions and the 130 million Americans who are members-owners of their credit union. This includes hard-working families and small business owners across your state.”
Lewis noted that leagues are planning visits for the hundreds of credit union advocates coming to Washington, D.C. in February as part of the 2023 CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference.
CUNA will continue its regular outreach to Congress leading up to—and after—the CUNA GAC.
