Project Zip Code (PZC) is a user friendly, secure computer program that counts your members and matches them by congressional district, state legislative district and county. These counts are then uploaded to CUNA's Project Zip Code website and combined with data from other credit unions nationwide. Many credit union members reside in states other than the state in which their credit union is domiciled. This is why it's important that all credit unions participate; without full participation we can't get a clear picture of our grassroots strength! Project Zip Code aids in federal and state advocacy efforts and participation provides operational benefits. Credit unions can view credit union members by geographic area, which can be useful in placing ATMs and shared branching.
Your information is safe and secure with Project Zip Code. No personally identifiable data or individual information leaves your computer. Project Zip Code receives only the counts of records successfully matched by the program. All of your data remains confidential and secure with Project Zip Code.
Project Zip Code is compliant with the privacy laws created in Gramm Leach Bliley.
All credit unions should regularly run this program in order to help ensure that elected officials are aware of the number of credit union members in their district. For more information or assistance, please contact MnCUN Director of Government Affairs Ryan Smith by email or at 651-288-5533.
