Project Zip Code
Project Zip Code (PZC) is a computer program that converts your credit union's database into a valuable political tool. PZC counts each of your members and calculates how many live in each state legislative and congressional district. This information greatly increases the political strength of your credit union by allowing you to show your legislators how a particular issue will impact a specific number of voters in their district.
This program does not remove any information from your system and does not expose your members' private data. The only information gathered by the program is the total number of members in each legislative district. The program is safe and can provide your credit union with valuable information when lobbying legislators.
