CUNA: Member Business Lending Hike the Hill

 

November 27 & 28, 2012

Washington, D.C.

 

PREPARE NOW: Grassroots Push and MBL Hike 
Wisconsin credit unions will have to compete with hundreds of other issues fighting for attention during the Lame Duck session. Be sure you have a plan to assure high levels of participation.
 
In the coming weeks there will be a nationwide effort to advance the Credit Union Small Business Jobs Act (SB 2231/H.R.1418) through both the House and Senate during the Lame Duck Session. There is limited time in which this can occur, just between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is crucial that Wisconsin's credit unions prepare now for a strong grassroots campaign.
 
As part of this effort, CUNA is hosting a Member Business Lending Hike the Hill November 27th and November 28th in Washington, D.C. which Wisconsin credit unions are invited to participate in.
 
Please consider the following ways you, your colleagues, credit union and members can participate:
 

HIKE THE HILL
It will be key to have strong Wisconsin representation in this Hike to share the real life benefits and need for this legislation.

 

Who

Credit union CEOs, directors and staff, and small businesses that:

  • have received a business loan from a credit union
  • were turned down by banks when seeking a business loan
  • could not receive a business loan from their credit union because of the MBL cap

 

When

November 27th, 5:00 pm to November 28th, late afternoon.
