The Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC)

The Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) is the political advocacy arm of the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), dedicated to advancing the credit union movement through political action. CULAC works to elect credit union-friendly candidates to Congress and supports legislative initiatives that promote credit union interests at the federal level.

By engaging credit union supporters across the country, CULAC ensures that the credit union industry's voice is heard in Washington, D.C., and helps to protect the rights of credit union members. Learn more about how CULAC is working to make a difference for credit unions and their members at:
