CUNA, League Toolkit Helps CUs Connect With Members On Tax Issue
"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 this link to access the host of advocacy materials.
