An overview of Governmental Affairs, and how they affect your credit union.

Credit unions are subject to state and federal regulations that govern the full range of their operations.  In addition to the two primary credit union regulatory bodies (CUNA & NCUA), credit unions must be well informed about the regulations promulgated by a wide variety of other governmental organizations. The Governmental Affairs Committee takes a proactive role in assisting credit unions to work with regulators to build a regulatory environment that will benefit and protect credit unions and their members.

The Committee also works with local and national individual lawmakers and lawmaking bodies to gain support for issues that affect credit unions and their ability to meet the financial needs of their members. Actual legislative advocacy involves everything from working personally with a legislator or aide on the wording of a bill to mobilizing hundreds, or even thousands, of supporters (through Grassroots Action) to bombard a legislature with phone calls/letters about an issue. It also includes educating legislators, supporters, and the public about the issue; and working with the media.

The session will cover:

  • Regulatory & Legislative Advocacy
    • Letters to Congress
    • Comment Calls
    • Hot topics

    • Hike the Hill
