Credit unions: There are new developments on interchange legislation that need your urgent attention. Your League contacted the offices of Sen. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine yesterday and urged them to oppose any efforts to advance the Credit Card Competition Act (CCCA). Now, we need you to mobilize your credit union and ensure staff, officials and members reach out to Virginia's senators. And many thanks to our advocates for generating 566 emails to our senators over the past 24 hours! Let's keep up the good work!

Jennifer McClellan (D-4th) and Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-11th). On Monday, we connected with the offices of Reps. Rob Wittman (R-1st), Jennifer Kiggans (R-2nd) and Don Beyer (D-8th).
Earlier this summer, we reached Reps. Bob Good (R-5th), Ben Cline (R-6th), Morgan Griffith (R-9th) and Jennifer Wexton (D-10th) through our Legislative Receptions across the state, and Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-7th) at an event in early September.

Your League’s GROWTH Conference starts with the premise that sustainable growth is a team endeavor. No matter your role at your credit union, you’ll gain actionable ideas for spurring growth at your credit union!
It's been a busy week here at the League! We hiked the hill in Washington D.C. with many of our credit unions on Monday and Tuesday, which yielded a number of productive meetings with the banking aides of our legislators, as well as with Sen. Mark Warner. That's not to say there wasn't also plenty of interest from the world of regulatory compliance, so let's look at important news and notes from the NCUA and the IRS ...
Your members need you. But what more can you do to meet them where they are in their life and financial journeys? Our Boot Camp uncovers the correlation between member financial health and member satisfaction, product use and financial confidence; will aid you in developing a financial health strategy for your credit union; and will offer best practices in creating programs for “financially vulnerable” and “financially coping” households.
The NCUA board will vote on a final loan participation rule at its Sept. 21 board meeting. The meeting is scheduled to start 10 a.m., and will be streamed live on NCUA.gov.
