CU System
Make waves. Vote advocacy tools available
MADISON, Wis. (2/4/08)--Credit unions can encourage their members to vote in the 2008 elections with a new statement stuffer and courses from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). Tomorrow is Super Tuesday, and presidential candidates will be trying to get delegations in 22 states. The events serve as a reminder for credit unions to urge their members to vote. With the upcoming elections, credit unions also will be stepping up their advocacy efforts. A new CUNA statement stuffer, “Make Waves. Vote” is available and provides information on why members should vote, how to register to vote or how to get an absentee ballot. The CUNA is offering “Communicating the Credit Union Difference” and “Direct Lobbying at the Grassroots Level” for credit union professionals. The courses are free and online. Also CUNA has a slew of free Get-Out-The-Vote materials, designed to help credit unions spur their members to the polls. Forty-four percent of registered voters are credit union members, says CUNA.
