CUNA Joins The Hill In Event For Committee Leadership
WASHINGTON (3/6/13)--Joining with The Hill newspaper, the Credit Union National Association was a co-sponsor last night for a special reception for House and Senate members, including committee and subcommittee chairs and ranking members newly appointed for the 113th Congress.

 more than 50 expected lawmakers in the Capitol in a get-to-know-you session beneficial to the House and Senate leaders and credit unions as well.  Credit unions were highlighted at the event when The Hill's organizers thanked CUNA, before the roomful of policymakers, for its role in supporting the event.

The event gave CUNA the opportunity to converse both with longstanding House and Senate members, as well as newly elected officials. The committees represented ranged from House Financial Services and House Oversight and Government Reform to Senate Judiciary and Senate Small Business, to name just a few.

The Hill is a Washington-based newspaper that covers Congress, lobbying and the Capitol Hill community, and circulates broadly among congressional offices and lobbying organizations.

In conjunction with the event last night, the publication ran a CUNA ad proclaiming, in part: FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS CREDIT UNIONS HAVE FOCUSED ON THEIR MEMBERS…Member‑owned. Member‑trusted. Meeting the needs of working Americans."
