Awards Committee  -  facilitates statewide and national awards programs and judges other states’ award program entries.

On the state level, the committee recognizes individuals through the Professional and Volunteer of the Year Awards. Network Staff Liaison: Julia Miller

Political Involvement Committee  (PIC) - provides input and recommendations on legislative efforts at the state and federal level. Policy suggestions and regulatory roadblocks are brought to the attention of PIC to collectively formulate the Network’s positions on legislation. PIC is also responsible for political fundraising, and oversees the distribution of political contributions made to credit union-friendly candidates. Network Staff Liaison: Ryan Smith

Regulatory Review Committee -  provides input and recommendations on proposed rules from various federal agencies that have the potential to impact credit unions. The committee meets regularly to review proposed rules that are out for comment and determines whether or not a response is necessary. Network Staff Liaison: Tim Tacheny

Committee members serve for one year – from their appointment through the following year’s Annual Conference. Please express your interest by completing this short application form, or pass it on to your employees who would be a good fit.
