Share Your REAL Solutions Stories
Instead of relying solely on easily forgotten figures and often-impersonal statistics, the REAL Solutions program collects and widely shares personal impact stories from Wisconsin's credit unions with policymakers and the public.
From accounts of above and beyond member service, to granted second chances, to responses to disaster, to meeting community needs, to returning funds back to their members through patronage, and more—these stories educate the public about their banking options and are vital in the fight to preserve the credit union difference.
In fact, lawmakers most often request these stories to illustrate to colleagues and constituents why credit unions earn their tax exemption daily.
These stories are shared annually at Convention and in our Wisconsin Credit Union Scorecard, as well as in face-to-face meetings with legislators and on social media. Check out the 2019 story collection.
