CUs: Play an active role in advocating for the industry

Looking for an opportunity to tell your credit union’s story face-to-face so lawmakers understand how burdensome regulations and other issues impact growth and day-to-day operations? Through NAFCU’s revamped virtual Congressional Caucus, credit unions have the opportunity to play an even more active role in advocating for the industry and its more than 121 million members.

During the event, participants will take part in NAFCU’s revered takeover of Capitol Hill by attending virtual meetings with their lawmakers and regulators. Attendees are encouraged to contact NAFCU’s Legislative Affairs team via the request Hill Visit form if they need assistance in setting up these meetings.

Scheduled Hill visits will be shared with participants so that other attendees can use them as a reference or request to join a specific meeting. Learn more and request Capitol Hill meetings here.

In addition, NAFCU’s award-winning advocacy team has put together a number of resources to support credit unions in these meetings, including its 2020 advocacy priorities, an infographic on the credit union difference, and pages dedicated to key industry issues.
