CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle and Deputy Chief Advocacy Officer Jason Stverak were named among The Hill’s top lobbyists for 2022. Nussle and Stverak were commended for demonstrating, “a track record of success in the halls of Congress and the administration during a critical year for policy.”  

Nussle joined CUNA in 2014 and has appeared on the list each year since then.

“Credit unions were able to accomplish several priorities this year through strong engagement with policymakers who understand the power of the credit union difference,” Nussle said. “Our laser focus on our members cuts through a lot of the noise in Washington, D.C., and I thank CUNA, League, and credit union leaders for the great advocacy work they do.”  

Stverak joined CUNA in October 2021 after serving as deputy chief of staff to Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D. 

“It’s an honor to be part of a team that is able to accomplish real, positive changes for our members,” Stverak said. “This honor is a testament to the strong relationships CUNA, Leagues, and credit unions continue to foster with each other, and with policymakers at the federal level.” 

Stverak was previously recognized as a Top 100 Lobbyist by the National Institute for Lobbying and Ethics.
