Looking back at a successful year of CU advocacy

CUNA President and CEO Jim Nussle reflected in his weekly report on the successes of 2019 and the “cooperative superpowers” credit unions share.

All of us, CUNA, Leagues, credit unions, Associate Business Members and system partners like CUNA Mutual, get the big things done.”

CUNA’s 2019 Impact Report video showcases the accomplishments of 2019, and these big wins are a springboard for credit unions to kick off 2020 with positive action. Ryan Donovan, CUNA chief advocacy officer, said “Bankers attempts to limit credit unions access to markets were beat back in the landmark win on the NCUA field of membership rule.”

He goes on to list other significant victories this year.
