Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation, Updated Toolkit Available

WASHINGTON – CUNA released new resources Tuesday for its Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation toolkit, resources designed to make it easier for credit union stakeholders to engage policymakers on the need for regulatory relief. New items include educational materials for employees and members, a media center and a look at how other credit unions are engaging their members.

Under the “What Other Credit Unions Are Doing” tab, CUNA members can view sample communications that have been sent out from credit unions to their members about the importance of engaging with policymakers on the need for tailored regulations that allow credit unions to better serve their members.

Other resources CUNA offers for stakeholders include:

Talking points for legislator visits on current and pending legislation and how it would offer relief, and in some cases, additional discussion points;

  • Information on how credit unions can schedule legislator visits, then how to successfully execute the visit to ensure it’s productive;
  • A list of sample tweets that can be sent by credit union employees, members and other stakeholders to policymakers, using the hashtag #CommonSenseReg; and
  • Information on CUNA’s Member Activation Program (MAP), which credit unions are encouraged to register for in order to get members engaged.

Credit unions that have used MAP to engage members, or have otherwise taken part in the Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation, are encouraged to contact CUNA with their stories.

CUNA’s bipartisan, pro-consumer Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation aims to reduce regulation on credit unions by compelling Congress to end one-size-fits-all regulations better suited for Wall Street than credit unions on Main Street.
