2017 Testimonies - Large

Your Positions are Our Positions

We work around the clock with credit union leaders and key legislators and regulators here in Washington, D.C. to tell your story – the credit union story.

In 2017 we placed nine member credit unions as witnesses in front of Congress to advocate for access to a strong secondary mortgage market, reducing regulatory burdens, modernizing credit union powers, data and cybersecurity concerns and solutions, meeting member business lending needs, improving SBA access for credit unions, and creating new credit unions. Read the testimonies.

We've worked hard to ensure the regulators are working in the best interest of credit unions, including gains in promoting the credit union difference to the Administration, expanding credit union powers through NCUA, fighting for a true risk-based capital system, achieving the most comprehensive field-of-membership reform in a decade, keeping the CFPB on their heels and more.
