Berger represents CUs in White House discussion on housing finance

July 18, 2014 – NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger represented credit unions during a White House meeting Thursday on housing finance reform with senior White House staff and officials from Treasury and the Council of Economic Advisers.

The meeting was the latest of several NAFCU has attended over the past months in its effort to ensure credit unions' interests are protected in any final housing finance reform package.

"We appreciated the opportunity to participate in Thursday's discussion," said Berger. "Going forward, NAFCU will continue to press the case for ensuring credit unions equal, competitive access to the secondary mortgage market and fair pricing based on loan quality in any final reform plan."

Thursday's meeting also included representatives of the National Association of Realtors, the Financial Services Roundtable, Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, National Multi Housing Council and American Bankers Association.
