CUNA, League Toolkit Helps CUs Connect With Members On Tax Issue
WASHINGTON (2/21/13)--The Credit Union National Association Thursday unveiled an important members-only toolkit--designed to help credit unions connect with their members and educate the public about credit unions as banks intensify their state-level attacks against the credit union tax status.

"CUNA and the leagues are empowering credit unions with the tools they need to ensure their members understand the value of membership," CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said, announcing the new Credit Union Tax Status Advocacy Toolkit webpage.

"Our research shows that when members understand the value of membership, they will stand with us to defend the exemption," he emphasized.

The new webpage features free materials in the form of radio ads, print ads, newsletter articles, state-level updates, materials to use in advocacy efforts with federal and state lawmakers, and much more.

Cheney encouraged credit unions to work with their members and to be prepared on the tax issue. " Whether federal tax reform happens in a week, two months or 10 months from now, we need not only an educated Congress, but also an educated membership," he said.

CUNA members can use the link below to access the host of advocacy materials.
