CUs: Represent your members by telling their stories on Capitol Hill

Looking for an opportunity to share your credit union’s story in real time so lawmakers understand how burdensome regulations and other issues impact growth and day-to-day operations? Through NAFCU’s revamped hybrid Congressional Caucus, offered both online and in-person, credit unions can play an even more active role in advocating for the industry and its more than 125 million members.

During the event, attendees will engage with speakers from the Administration, Congress, and regulatory agencies such as the NCUA and FHFA. This year, political icon and best-selling author James Carville joins as keynote during a special Q&A with NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. Additionally, participants will take part in NAFCU’s revered takeover of Capitol Hill by attending meetings with lawmakers and regulators.

If you need assistance setting up meetings with lawmakers, you may contact NAFCU’s Legislative Affairs team via the request Hill Visit form. 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.

NAFCU’s award-winning advocacy team has put together a number of resources to support credit unions in these meetings, including its 2021 advocacy priorities, an infographic on the credit union difference, and pages dedicated to key industry issues.
