When you become a member of a credit union, you become part of a group of individuals dedicated to the people helping people philosophy. It’s a philosophy that we live by and one that is important to support. Your involvement and advocacy for the credit union helps keep a philosophy alive that has helped so many people.
As a member of a credit union, you’re a member-owner — meaning you have a say in how your credit union is run. Who better to be an advocate for credit unions than its members? Your voice is important in supporting the future of the credit union movement.
The creators of the credit union movement had to work hard to establish it, and to this day, we are still working to support it. Our continued advocacy is the continued effort to fight for the philosophy that we believe in.
It’s important that we actively participate in the law and regulation decision-making that can directly affect credit unions. As financial institutions advance we need to ensure that we can still provide the products and services that our members need.
Our advocacy helps maintain our tax status and helps eliminate barriers, so we can better serve our members with outstanding customer service, low-rate loans, high-interest saving accounts and more. The issues that the credit union movement faces are important and our voice must be ready to support it whenever we need to.
As a member, you own part of the credit union and your voice makes a difference! Together, we can achieve great things that help benefit our community.
