CU Activists Discuss 'Don't Tax' Campaign Involvement On Inside Exchange
WASHINGTON (12/4/13)--With Congress entering its final weeks before the end of its first session, and talk of tax reform becoming more prevalent, credit union activism is more important than ever. In the latest edition of the Credit Union National Association's Inside Exchange, credit union activists tell CUNA's Paul Gentile how and why they became engaged with the "Don't Tax My Credit Union" campaign.

The Inside Exchange episode features executives and volunteers from credit unions discussing how they have encouraged their staffs and members in supporting the "Don't Tax" campaign. In particular, the credit union activists discuss with Gentile what's at stake for credit unions, how members are receiving the message, and some of the results they have seen.



CUNA and the leagues have set forth a revitalized push to engage credit unions in the campaign, including maintaining nearly constant contact with lawmakers. Since the campaign began in late May, more than 1.2 million contacts with lawmakers have already been made.
