The Governmental Affairs Forum held during the Annual Meeting always features an exciting line-up of engaging speakers, and provides insights and analysis on credit union issues at the state and federal level. More information is coming in the months ahead.
Hike the Hill is a grassroots program sponsored by CUNA and the state leagues to provide credit unions with the opportunity to visit Washington to educate decision makers on credit union issues.
Attendees are prepped on what to expect in advance of each trip and upon their arrival. Once they arrive in Washington, credit unions are further prepared in issues briefings by CUNA's governmental affairs team. Briefing packets are also distributed and focus on issues specific to each state.
When credit unions participate in Hike the Hill, they demonstrate that credit union support has a real face, real concerns and real stories of how credit unions affect the lives of working Americans.
