The Minnesota Credit Union Network seeks to help the credit union industry grow market share by creating a favorable legislative environment, easing regulatory burdens and increasing consumer awareness.
To help achieve this goal, MnCUN has established restricted funds to strengthen our advocacy efforts on behalf of Minnesota’s credit unions. This fund provides resources to strongly position credit unions on the legislative and political fronts.
The Advocacy Fund is proactive in nature, helping to create a strong credit union environment and augment MnCUN’s advocacy efforts. 2022 is expected to be a busy political year with the Minnesota Legislative session starting in February, the redistricting of political maps and and an election where the Governor and entire legislature are on the ballot.
Advocacy fund dollars support grassroots materials and collateral to demonstrate the CU Difference to lawmakers, including the Working for Minnesota website and the GREAT program. Additionally, The National Advocacy Fund, which is coordinated by CUNA, finances grassroots advocacy, electoral polling, research, and partisan communications. National Advocacy Fund dollars have been deployed in Minnesota for election engagement, polling and radio ads.
Please consider supporting these funds and initiatives that help position credit unions as the best financial partner for Minnesotans and fulfill the “people helping people” philosophy. Credit unions who want to support the Advocacy Fund are encouraged to donate to the fund along with their 2022 dues renewal.
The Pulse is MnCUN's newsletter that keeps credit union professionals and board members updated on current news and information.
