'Inside Exchange': How To Debunk Bankers On CU Tax Issue
WASHINGTON (9/26/13)--The Credit Union National Association and state leagues continue to address top issues like the credit union tax status when bills are introduced at the state level, and they often coordinate their advocacy efforts with varied state-by-state legislative schedules. In the latest edition of CUNA's "Inside Exchange" video series, Pat Sowick, CUNA senior vice president of league relations, details the resources that her department provides to help credit union leagues in these efforts.



"The leagues developing relationships at the state level is very important, because almost half of state legislators are sitting up the Hill right now, on Capitol Hill, as members of Congress. So fostering those relationships really benefits credit unions in the long run. If they can start in Congress with some type of knowledge about credit unions, and appreciation for credit unions, we're going to do a lot better here in D.C., too," Sowick said in the latest "Inside Exchange" video segment.
 
This latest video, hosted by CUNA Executive Vice President of Communications Paul Gentile,  is part of CUNA's "Inside Exchange" series, which offers periodic, topical videos on issues important to credit unions. CUNA suggest members can use this resource for education purposes and as a great tool to keep staff and board informed on important issues.
