Representatives from more than a dozen credit unions and the League met today with Gov. Glenn Youngkin and key administration officials.
Dialogue with the governor’s key policy advisors and administration officials included a host of issues: credit union growth, the future of cryptocurrency, service to underserved communities, permission for credit unions to accept municipal deposits, and the credit union difference.
