House Financial Services’ Waters, Perlmutter to speak at NAFCU’s Caucus
House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and subcommittee Ranking Member Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., are recent additions to the growing list of Congressional Caucus speakers.
NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus, Sept. 10-13 in Washington, will provide credit union attendees with the chance to hear directly from lawmakers, members of the administration and regulators on the top issues facing the industry. Credit union representatives will also have the chance to meet one-on-one with lawmakers throughout the conference.
Earlier this year, NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger, with senior staff, met with Waters on top credit union issues, including regulatory burden. During the past Congress, she supported legislation that would have increased credit unions’ lending ability.
