Nussle, CUNA Leaders to Talk Election Results in Webinar Today

CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle and other CUNA leaders will break down what a Democrat-controlled House and a larger Republican majority in the Senate means for credit unions Thursday in a free webinar for CUNA members. Nussle will be joined by Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan and Chief Political Officer Richard Gose.

Tuesday’s election resulted in a credit union-friendly majority for the 116th Congress, which will convene in January. CUNA, leagues, credit unions and members were heavily involved in the election, including support for 388 candidates for the House and Senate.

Items covered will include:

* CUNA’s political and grassroots efforts to secure a credit union-friendly majority in both chambers for the 116th Congress;

* How the results will impact credit union advocacy priorities, including potential leadership changes and new committee members;

* How credit unions can best navigate the post-election advocacy environment; and

* CUNA’s white paper on what the election means for credit unions, which will be released after the webinar.

Registration is still open for the webinar, which is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. today. Those who register will also be able to view a recording, which will be available within a day.

The NJCUL will look at the election’s impact from a New Jersey perspective at its next regular Political & Legislative Update scheduled for Friday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m. Registration for that members-only webinar is open as well.
