Don't Tax My Credit Union Campaign

Credit unions promote the economic well being of their members, especially those of modest means, through a system that is member-owned, volunteer-directed and not-for-profit.

The credit union mission has always been to ensure secure financial choices at lower costs for their members. That’s why credit unions offer financial products that provide better returns on savings, reduced rates on loans and lower or no fees on services.

While credit unions are regulated by the federal and state governments, they are also governed by volunteer boards elected by their membership. Credit unions don’t answer to stockholders, but to each of their 96 million members.

Credit unions invest in people by helping those who have been traditionally underserved by banks. Groups like seniors on fixed incomes, single working moms, minority communities needing greater community investment, and small business owners struggling to raise capital all rely on credit unions for important financial services at reasonable costs.

While the big banks have abandoned small businesses in droves because they just can’t make enough money, credit unions promote their small business members in a struggling economy by providing low cost credit alternatives. This credit union investment means millions of jobs across America.

Unfortunately, the big banks and some in Congress want to raise taxes and impose new fees on 96 million credit union members who represent 40% of all Americans, yet represent only 6% of the assets in financial institutions. And, they want to do this despite the fact that credit unions are not-for-profit and meeting their core mission every day.

That’s wrong and will imperil the credit union movement that so many have come to depend on for real financial choice.

Don’t let Congress raise taxes on 96 million credit union members. Don’t let Congress eliminate real financial choice. Don’t let Congress destroy our credit unions.

Plan to join peers in Saratoga New York for the 2014 Leadership Conference.  The program is being expanded this year to provide additional education but there will still be plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery, shopping and, if you are in the mood, spend the evening at the Saratoga Casino and Raceway.  Review the links below for program information and to register for the Conference.  The registration page also identifies the contact number for the hotel – be sure to register quickly since the special discounted space is limited.  We continue to work on some value added extras for the event so check back for more information. 

 

Ten scholarships for full registration are available to credit unions under $50 Million in assets and a discounted registration fee of $299 is available for young professionals (under the age of 35).
