CUNA interchange teleconference archive posted
WASHINGTON (4/15/11)--Audio of Wednesday’s national credit union interchange teleconference has now been posted on the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) homepage. During the 30-minute audio call, CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney said that now is the time for credit unions to band together and use their "big voice" to oppose proposed interchange changes. The opportunities to ask legislators to stop, study and start over on interchange fee cap legislation are growing fewer as the July 21 effective date approaches, and Cheney said that the upcoming two-week congressional district work period provides one such opportunity. Credit union representatives that secure meetings with their respective legislators during this work period should thank the legislators that are supporting an interchange implementation delay, and ask those who have not yet signed on as co-sponsors to do so. "There is really no better way to talk to a member of Congress than face-to-face," Cheney emphasized. To hear the teleconference in full, use the resource link.
