Nearly 100 credit union advocates from Kansas and Missouri from 32 different credit unions will head to Washington, D.C. for the Credit Union National Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference, February 26-March 2.
Both credit unions and consumers continue to feel the impact of the Dodd-Frank Act. Our president/CEO, Brad Douglas, addressed this plus the need to repeal the Durbin Amendment as part of the regulatory relief efforts in a recent op-ed in the Missouri Times.
The Heartland Credit Union Association (HCUA) is working with the Credit Union National Association and other credit union leagues in a national advocacy campaign plan to target excessive regulations that hurt credit unions and our members. The national effort will roll out in January. You, your staff and your volunteers can help us get the ball rolling in advance of the 2017 legislative session.
