Credit unions' involvement in politics is vital to the growth and success of the movement. For that reason, it is essential that they become actively involved in the legislative process. The Network offers credit unions the opportunity to join a variety of political programs. Become involved today and join the network of credit union individuals dedicated to ensuring that the credit union voice is heard at both the state and nation capitols.
Much of the strength of Minnesota credit unions' political advocacy efforts lies in our numbers. With more than 120 credit unions and 1.6 million members, we have a grassroots network that legislators notice. The Network's grassroots programs ensure that elected officials hear credit union opinions and perspectives on legislative issues.
The foundation of credit unions' advocacy efforts is the relationships they build with elected officials. Throughout the year, the Network provides credit union professionals various opportunities to meet with their representatives and educate them about the credit union difference.
The Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC) and the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee (CULAC) raise funds to support credit union-friendly candidates at the state and federal levels, respectively. More information on political fundraising.
