Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Written by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

This upcoming election will be something. While the White House isn’t in play, both parties have a lot on the line.

  • Who will control committees next year?
  • What issues will resonate with voters, which could form the foundation of the 2024 presidential election?
  • What does this all mean for credit unions?

Are you a political junky? Then you need to come to NAFCU’s Congressional Caucus September 11-14. You’ll have direct access to lawmakers and regulators. Ask them questions and share your concerns. Help Congress understand so they can better champion and support credit unions and the over 131 million members they serve.

And you get a front-row ticket to the elections that will take place just weeks after the event.

Let me know if you’ll be attending. Save $200.00 on each person you register with code CCSAVINGS offer ends today!
