Berger talks political landscape at Caucus delegate breakfast

NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger discussed the current political landscape, giving a recap of the composition of the 114th Congress and looking ahead to possible outcomes of the 2016 elections during a delegate breakfast at the association’s Congressional Caucus Tuesday.

Berger encouraged credit union attendees to talk about the regulatory burden they face with all their lawmakers, Republicans and Democrats, to make sure their story is heard. He told attendees to be specific with lawmakers on how issues affect their credit union members – lawmakers’ constituents.
