WASHINGTON (10/14/11)--D.C.-based political publication The Hill
has named Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Bill Cheney as a top nonprofit lobbyist for his positive work for credit unions during the past year.
Cheney said the recognition “is a reflection of the significant efforts that CUNA, the leagues and credit unions put forth on behalf of the entire movement over the past year.” Fights over the new debit card interchange fee cap, increased member business lending for credit unions, and other legislative issues have also kept Cheney and CUNA staff busy throughout 2011. The CUNA CEO was one of 64 named to The Hill’s
2011 list. Cheney was also named as one of the Top Association CEOs of 2011 when CEO Update's
list of influential executives was released earlier this year. That publication noted that Cheney has been credited by allies and adversaries alike "for nearly scoring a major upset in the debit-card swipe fee battle." CEO Update
also recognized CUNA Senior Vice President of Legislative Affairs Ryan Donovan’s work on behalf of credit unions, naming him as one of 2011's top lobbyists. For the full story from The Hill
