20,000 Letters Generated So Far
Credit union leaders were reminded by the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues this week that their participation is essential to preserving the movement's tax-exempt status.

Last week the threat escalated when the Senate Finance Committee identified the credit union tax status as a potential target for abolishment.

—Engagement With CU Members—
The Leagues want to thank the following credit unions for their leadership in engaging members to reach out to Congress:

  • California Coast CU
  • KeyPoint CU
  • LBS Financial CU
  • Media City CU
  • Silver State Schools CU

"These grassroots leaders have helped generate more than 20,000 letters to Congress, but we have a long way to go to hit our goal of 500,000 contacts from California and Nevada," said David Creager, manager of grassroots advocacy for the Leagues.
