This monthly publication replaces the Chapter Bulletin to help you provide announcements at your chapter meeting. It is accessible from the chapter page of The League's website. Produced by The Wisconsin Credit Union League (Communications Department), this piece updates chapter leaders & League directors on our progress toward a shared vision for credit union success: more consumers see credit unions as their best financial partner. Its goal is 55 million consumers choosing credit unions as their primary financial institution and $20 billion in member benefits by 2023. Please share this news at your chapter meeting; your involvement is crucial to our success!

Removing barriers

  • Amplify your voice: provide the industry insurance before November
    With the November elections quickly approaching, this is an opportune time to support credit union friendly and strategically important candidates' efforts to remain in office or we risk political vulnerability in the next legislative session. Legislators helped us pass advantageous legislation and policy last session. Now it's our turn to return the favor, say thanks, and help them in re-election. As part of a statewide effort to amplify our voice as an industry through political advocacy, immediate Past Chairman of CUNA and Central City Credit Union President Pat Wesenberg, in a letter to credit union presidents earlier this summer, asked each institution to consider how they can contribute to improve the industry's political advocacy. Find out how your credit union contributed to this effort during the first half of the year by clicking here (login required). Chapters, historically, have also been key contributors to supporting credit union political advocacy through support of our Political Action Committee (PAC) for state-level candidates, WCULAF, through events like auctions. Unfortunately, the last two years have seen a decline in Chapters' contributions to credit union political advocacy. Last chapter season, Chapter auctions brought in nearly $3,500 less than two years prior, before the last general election. Consider how your Chapter, your credit union and you can pitch in to be sure the industry has the resources available to support key candidates and have another successful session.
