CUs to talk pandemic relief, data security, modernization

March 1, 2021

CUNA Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan wrote to all 535 Congressional offices Monday as Leagues and credit unions meet with elected officials in conjunction with this week’s CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC).

Donovan said credit union advocates will be looking to “discuss ways Congress and credit unions work in tandem to advance your community and improve your constituents' financial well-being.”

Credit unions’ top priorities are:

  • Allowing credit unions to be there for those hit hardest by the pandemic’s economic fallout;
  • Passing a strong data security standard that preempts state laws;
  • Modernizing the way credit union charters are structured.
