NAFCU highlights key issues, priorities for regulators

As NAFCU moves forward with its 2021 advocacy priorities, NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger Tuesday sent key federal agencies and administration officials an outline of the priorities and issues the association and credit unions will be focused on to achieve a healthy regulatory environment.

NAFCU launched its 2021 advocacy priorities this week as the 117th Congress was sworn in. Berger has shared these priorities with congressional leadership and House and Senate members, and also further detailed the association’s strategy in a Credit Union Times op-ed.
