Comment Letter Writing

Writing an effective comment letter is a critical part of your advocacy efforts. NJCUL encourages credit unions to submit comment letters on proposed regulations because you have a right to have your voice heard. Telling the credit union’s and your members’ ‘story’ of how new or proposed regulations will impact you, positively and/or negatively, is the best way to tell your regulator, or the proposing agency, in terms they can use to come to a thoughtful decision when adjusting or finalizing a rule.

For tips on writing an effective, impactful comment letter, watch this video from NCUA. NJCUL works continuously to effectively advocate on your behalf and work to remove the regulatory barriers that impede your ability to serve your members. Have questions? Need guidance on interpreting proposed regulations? Need help putting your thoughts on paper? You can always contact NJCUL’s Vice President of Compliance and Regulatory Affairs, Nicola Foggie, at nfoggie@njcul.org. Thank you for being an important part of our advocacy efforts.
