meet the most influential federal regulators – from NCUA and the
Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) – at The Wisconsin

the U.S. House and both U.S. Senators or their staff.
"This is a rare opportunity to interact in a
fairly intimate setting with the leaders affecting credit unions'
regulatory environment. Developing a strong working relationship with
these policymakers is needed for progress on increasing the business
lending cap, streamlining ATM bill disclosure requirements, gaining
access to supplemental capital, providing exam fairness measures and
overall regulatory relief," said VP of Government Affairs Tom Liebe.

Congressional Districts have registered, but attendance by more credit
unions from the Milwaukee area, Fond du Lac and northeastern areas would
greatly improve our presence and influence at the event.
"This event allows our movement to go beyond
what we do all year to advocate on the political and regulatory fronts.
Our dedication to advocating for Wisconsin's credit unions and credit
union members is made clear by our presence in person, so that we can
have an open dialog, make a personal connection and share stories about
