New Project Zip Code software is now available


Version 13.0 of Project Zip Code software is now available for download. Wisconsin credit unions are encouraged to take a few moments to download this program, which safely assesses the presence of your credit union members in each zip code. This information can be crucial in illustrating credit unions’ impact in each legislative district and Wisconsin overall.


Twice a year, credit unions should use the latest Project Zip Code software and your member database to help demonstrate credit unions' statewide and nationwide presence. No identifying member information is revealed, but your results can inform legislators how many credit union members are constituents, giving credit unions a stronger voice.


"Credit unions are deeply ingrained in communities across the state, with more than 40% of the state population belonging to a credit union," said League VP of Government Affairs Tom Liebe. "Project Zip Code data powerfully illustrates that credit union members represent a huge base of potential support for any legislator and legislation related to credit unions directly affects a great deal of their constituencies."


Project Zip Code, which provides credit union member totals for the 113th Congress and state legislative districts, can also be helpful in internal decision making, including identifying communities that would benefit from new ATM or branch locations.


The League’s Government Affairs Department is here to help your credit union compile and use this valuable advocacy information. For assistance, contact Sarah Wainscott at (608) 514-0086.
